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?

I really appreciate this site. As I commented previously, any and all info about hip prosthesis revision surgery is appreciated and strongly desired. My infection was discovered 4 years after my original surgery, but it seems clear it was infected shortly after the original surgery. It sounds bizarre in retrospect, but I had numerous episodes of fever and night sweats, pneumonia and extreme pain alternating with periods where the hip felt really good! Anyway, I am currently faced with a dislocated spacer while on antibiotics but trying to be positive and find hope I could get a second hip and do well. Currently contemplating if second surgery a success, what are my legitimate expectations? I am 63 yo and love to golf and swim and walk with my wife. Anyone with any info would be great. Thanks.
