Pin in hip giving pain

I had hip surgery involving bolts and pins many years ago. I was told, at the time that I could keep them in my hip forever. However, over time I started experiencing pain. It took at least four different doctors to convince me to have the metal removed. When I finally agreed, it felt so much better. As long as his hip is completely healed and he doesn’t need the pins anymore, I don’t think it matters if it’s taken out.

That is an interesting reply. Thank you! I will tell this to my husband, and then talk to the doctor about it. So far the doctors we visited have given little information. Thanks again!!

Hi again. I spoke to my husband and he is nervous about another operation and the rehab. His first rehab was exhausting. How about the rehab after the pins were removed? I was just re-reading the doctor's note to him, and it mentioned rod and screws. I was reading also that removal can be quite complicated. (What a mess.) I hope the doctor remembers or has on record what type of rod and screws he used. And what kind of cement. Yes, what a mess with these things.
