I am scheduled for what is called a revision. The lining between the ball and socket is to be replaced.
I understand the socket will also be replaced.
Is this a common procedure? I am having second thoughts regarding this procedure as lately I am thinking that my discomfort is muscular, as I have no sharp pain.
My hip (one of 2) is 24 years old and I am 78. (titanium, ceramic ball and plastic socket)
I have had x-rays and an MRI.
I am still playing pickle ball with no sharp pain. If I sit in my rocking chair I have little or no pain but I am not ready to do that yet.
Swimming is not a problem.
The thigh muscle has never returned to proper size. Example I can’t balance on this leg.
My other hip is fine. (metal on metal which I understand they don’t do now)
Thanks for the input.
