Pin in hip giving pain

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.

The metal in my hip rather disintegrated upon removal because I waited so many years to have it removed. I don’t recall the rehab being too bad but I was a lot younger than I am now…..although it’s nothing like having a hip replacement or anything
like that because your hip is remaining intact. I hope that helps but make sure you check it all out with your doctor, but I did find in the long run, the surgery ended up being well worth it.
