    there's also studies (in france - a lot of the research has been done at Toulouse) showing that the dual mobility prothesis is better for overweight/obese ppl because it dramatically reduces risk of dislocation. I'm going to ask the surgeon about it on wednesday

Now onto the hypermobility a question he did ask me is if I had Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, or had ever been diagnosed with it, because he said I was showing quite a few signs of it-hence the dual mobility implant.
