Hip revision due to femoral stem proximally...yikes?!
After almost 4 years of my hip not being right, THA in 2018, I finally found a physician at Mayo who would listen to my concerns.
I have a loose femoral stem, but only the top part of it, not the part that goes into the femor, just the proximal end.
I am nervous about the outcome, hoping my pain is not any worse? Hoping the swelling finally goes down? I am just over 50 years old and typically very active. This will be the first winter I can't ski in over 3 decades. I am nervous.
Anyone have any advice pre or post surgery?
Any have this same thing happen? Did you have an anterior approach?
Seems like my local doctor has dropped the ball on more than 1 occasion and I am hoping for better luck at Mayo.
