@Josephine, do you think icing would help if a loose implant is the problem? Does it help you?
IN the beginning, I found that a couple of paracetamol (1,000mg Tylenol) now and again would help but as time has gone on, nothing works but a TENS machine

I am better today since I did nothing yesterday so I haven't called my doctor yet. I'm praying about whether to go back to my original OS or to a new one that's 1 1/2 hours away. If the cement from DePuy that he used was bad, then I can't fault my original OS. I need to find out how many revisions he does. That is very important.
