There are many people who have had a hip replacement and had to undergo hip revision because the implant failed. I know its hard going through surgery after surgery and just hoping that it would be the last one. Many patients have filed a lawsuit just to get the proper compensation for all the hip problems that they have experienced due to hip implant failure.

Sorry to hear that. It must have been a struggle. There are adverse effects that these hip implant devices carry. I just hope that this will be your last operation. You may want to check this site for more recent news about hip replacement problems.
