My husband had hip revision surgery last March.
My husband had hip revision surgery last March. He was left mostly paralyzed in that leg. It’s been 10 months of pt and he has improved and walks with a walker. He had severe bone loss so there was doubt that it was going to hold. Last X-ray sept 2014 dr said walker or cane see u in March. Well nov pt evaluation the realist said something not right. He twisted leg and my husband felt something pop. Wa down for days because of pain. He thought it was just the usual pain from surgery only worse because of the pt twisting and evaluating. Hence just got in to see dr only to discover cup has moved and turned, and 1 of the screws is broken sticking sideways. Dr says 2 months to order new custom made part. Well it’s 9 weeks before surgery only to find out its 3 weeks to make it. It all comes down to he only does 1 of these 1 a week. Get inline. Has anyone had this new plate and cup put in at mayo. I have called to get opinion from dr he saw there before the surgery to see what his opinion is. The dr is the best in this area but waiting over 2 months in pain seems unfair . What are the results of this surgery please? Thanks
