@inthebeginning, Nice to hear that my story gives you a more hopeful state of mind for your own revision. That makes it worth the time it takes to put up these posts. I look forward to hearing the OS's theories on why the femoral implant loosened. I realize they probably don't know for sure, but they should have some suspicions. I'm glad to hear they are doing a thorough work up prior to surgery so they know what to expect when they go in. You want no surprises on surgery day. The best of luck in your revision. The month will go fast. Before you know it, the surgery will be over, and you will be on the healing side. Revisions Rock!
