This is sad to hear. The reason why some women stopped their hormone therapy was because studies in 2002 showed it raised the risk of breast cancer and did not lower heart-disease risk and, in fact, may elevate the risk in some women. So, its damn if you do and damn if you don't. Yes there is the hip replacement surgery to correct the fracture, however, reading from this website , it seems that the procedure itself has become faulty due to the mateal-on-metal hip implants.

It seems hip fractures does not only caused by injuries but as well by the kind of medications we take which may lead to hip pains and triggers a person to undergo a hip implant such as Depuy pinnacle hip replacement procedure. This is alarming yet very informative. More details at

The website has a vast range of information and explanation about hip-related problems.Truly, there is a growing number of patients who opt to have a hip implant. Regarding hip replacements devices, one should know that the subsidiary company of Johnson&Johnson (DePuy Orthopaedics Inc.) has recalled two of its products. These are the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. 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. For more infomation about DePuy Hip Replacement Recall, seek legal advice.
