Lend/Mend me a Hip

Posted by netpatient @netpatient, Jan 29, 2022

I need a new hip and a new shoulder. Mine was destroyed from metastasis. I wish a miracle

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Bones, Joints & Muscles Support Group.

Hi @netpatient, can you share a bit more? You say your hip and shoulder were destroyed due to metastases from cancer. (Note, I also added this discussion to the Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) group (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/neuroendocrine-tumors-nets/)

Do you have bone metastasis? Have you discussed the possibility of surgery with your cancer team?


No, I haven't. Colleens

That is where you may wish to start. Ask your cancer team if replacement surgery may be an option for you.
