Hi. I’ve had bilateral hip replacements and revisions but 2 years ago I underwent a femoral osteotomy. I’ve been in pain since and after many diagnostic tests as to why I continued to experience pain and discomfort, it was determined that the hardware was the culprit of my chronic pain. My physician is recommending removal of the hardware. I’m curious to know if anyone has had this issue and if so, was there any improvement after removing it. Also interested in the recovery process. Thank you.
