Hip Replacement
ticotom posted:
I had my rt. hip replaced over a year ago (Dupuy -- Metal on Metal). About three months I was back to my normal activities( golf, Pickle ball, walking, swiming etc.) about three months after that I started to get pain in the rt hip again. Went to my Dr. (Xrays, Ct scan, excercise's, etc) No help. Went to get second option Dr. no help. Third Dr. said it was Muscels not to alignement. Had a blood test for heavy metals (Chrome, Cobalt, Iron) Test indicated three time higher than normal for Chrome & Cobalt. Dr. put me on PT program still no held. Any suggestions?
