When I went to my OS to have staples removed the nurse said that my OS designed my implant. Not sure if that is good or bad thing. I never asked what kind I had. Maybe that is a question I should have asked prior to surgery. I have an appointment Thursday going to try to get more info. Are there any questions I should ask as my OS is not the most chatty person.

Ref- glad to hear you are happy with those Triathlons as that's what my OS is planning for me. He's done over 4000 joint replacements with zero infection complications, so I trust his judgement. But it's always good to hear.

The Stryker Triathlons have served me extremely well. I have not had any problems with them and the let me do whatever I wish to---excellent implants---but then again, they all are---it is the surgeon's skill that matters the most.
