I had surgery for a fractured femur in 2005. Ever since had periodic pain in that area. Finally changed orthopaedists and found out the plate and screws in it are irritating thigh. Nurses have advised me to have the hardware removed. If pain worsens, I will. I am now 75 and in good health except for my “bird bones” from my red haired grandmother. I do enjoy the expressions on the faces of airport security when they see all my skeleton hardware! @leslie324

Hi Faith, In 2018, I broke my hip from a fall while on vacation in Canada. At the hospital in Trois Riveres, I rec'd a "partial" hip replacement. I don't have pain from the hip, but I guess it has gravitated to severe spinal stenosis. After 2years I started epidurals. The first did nothing, but after the 2nd one I am experiencing neuropathy. The Neurologist did an EMG and diagnosed I needed surgery on my back. Physical therapy hasn't helped, so next try is acupuncture. Never give up!!
