Metal Hip Femar Replacment
May 22, 2006

I have AVN. 1st left hip done 12/04-no problems. Metal hip replacement done 12/05 - problems. When I overwork my right hip, even just a little, sitting for long periods, walking I get these horrific ear aches that seem to eat away at the right side of my brain. Sometimes the pain can be so much that I want to yank the new metal out and replace it with plastic. When my right hip does not hurt then I am fine. Would you have any clue as to why this is happening? I am currently scheduled to see a neurologist this coming week. Would you have any ideas or words of encourgement for me to give this doctor?

Thank You.
