Hi, @Josephine ... I went back to my OS a couple of weeks ago for my routine one-year checkup and X-rays. He said the X-rays looked just like they should, he saw no problems. But today, when the radiologist's report that I requested arrived in the mail, I got concerned when I read THIS: "There is no significant interval change compared with the X-rays taken six months ago, other than slight cortical thickening in the medial aspect of the right femur near the distal stem of the femoral component consistent with a stress transmission." Can you interpret this for me in layman's language? It's hard not to be worried. Thank you, by the way, for bonesmart. I can't imagine going through this surgery without the information and support on this site. This site has been so amazing and helpful. I will always be so grateful.
