Dislocated hip again!

My friend experienced the same issue (multiple dislocations) and sought a surgeon experienced in complex revisions. He finally determined she had a damaged ligament and tendon that were too weak to help hold things in place, and a custom brace was built to support the hip as it healed. It was only removed for PT & showering for several months, then she slowly weaned off wearing it.
Have they determined the cause of your dislocations?

Hi I have now just had surgery to put cap liner put in , one day in . My surgeon is a specialist in revision hip surgeries and has been my surgeon throughout , a lot of my problem is muscle deterioration 😔 but am a little skeptical as he said he changed stem shaft and Ball as well ? So does that mean some where loose ? He said everything looked firm and custom cage is secure . I just have to trust it was 🤨 I to have a brace and wore it for 2 months after last dislocation until now .
I have stood up but not taken a step as such my anxiety flew through the roof . We shall see what today brings . Thanks
