I have been waiting for a discussion of hip revision as I currently have an “antibiotic spacer” in and am awaiting completion of antibiotics then a new or second prosthetic hip. Any info is appreciated. My story is long and sad but I am looking frwd to a new hip. Unfortunately my spacer dislocated and I am living with that until new surgery. I love hearing about all patient experiences but someone with a revision of 10 years is nice to hear!

Hello @bcs123456 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect and this discussion. I can see you feel hopeful after having read the post by @sueinmn about her 10-year post surgery update. It sounds like you have had quite a journey but are also really looking forward to a new hip, which is a great attitude.

What are you most curious about or in need of in terms of support from members?
