I had hip resurfacing done on both hips in May 2010 2 weeks apart. Metal on metal implants. 10 weeks post op the right femur broke at the fixture. THR with a stem, still metal on metal. 6 months later the left femur broke at the fixture with a THR stem metal on metal. 6 months later had more pain in both. Come to find metal on metal went bad. 3rd surgery on each hip with ceramic ball and plastic liner. 6 hip surgeries in 17 months. October 2018 had a revision on the left hip due to a loose stem, horrible recovery from femur shattered during extraction. March 2020 go to get my teeth cleaned and pre med with 2000 mg amoxicillin as usual. 3 days later my left hip is killing me so a week later I see Dr Steele at Andrews Institute and he aspirates the left hip with other blood work. I have an infection in the left hip. Dr is gonna open the hip up and flush/bathe in antibiotics and send me home with a pic line antibiotics 3 times a day for 6 weeks. If this procedure does not clear the infection then a spacer will be put in for the 6th surgery on the left hip then a 7th surgery to put the hardware back in. I surly hope the cleanout works!
