thanks for the links. my pain is not too bad. its the bloody leakage from the incision and the piece of wire that is attached to somethingand sticking out of the incision tthats awfull. had sverel docs look at it after I refused to see the one that did it as he said there was nothing he could do anymore but cut my leg off and he refused to even look at the weeping wound, the problem with a second opinion is that docs refusue to help after another doc messed it up. docs seem to say, I am perfect and incapable of a mistake, threrfore any problem is your fault,, you did something wrong. I know I sound like a whiner but I have the xrays to prove my point, and again I don't care what happened, I just want to stop bleeding, I can handle the new hip, it seems to working fine

Have you thought about contacting the hospital where the surgery was done and seeing if they have a patient advocate you can talk with to get a resolution and get the wound care you need? There's also a Patient Advocate Foundation (https://www.patientadvocate.org/) that might be able to help.
