Hip Problem

Looks like I will be out of commission for a while...torn hip labrum is the probable cause of the intense pain. I will get an MRI to confirm Dr's suspicion, then visit an orthopedic to determine the course of corrective action...this stinks, but I am glad to finally know the cause of the problem.

hip replacement lawsuit said...

In light with the risks and complications of having a metal-on-metal hip replacement surgery, let me briefly discuss about the DePuy Hip Replacement Recall. In behalf of patients who had hip replacement implants, law firms in the US, UK and Australia have currently initiated court action against DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. DePuy is a subsidiary company of Johnson and Johnson, which issued a worldwide recall of their products. Dr. Stephen Graves says “It is a complete untruth that DePuy did not have reason to withdraw the ASR before now; we have been telling them since 2007, but they allowed it to be used on thousands of people.” He is the director of the National Joint Replacement Registry in Australia.
