    I read the article and am taking heart that at the end of this paragraph, which sounds like what I am dealing with, it says that "Surgery is very seldom necessary" :

    The shaft just below the tip of the stem typically is a lot more flexible than the shaft above, which is stiffer because of the embedded metal hip stem. This condition occurs more commonly with non-cemented hip stems and is more common with some designs than others. Fortunately the thigh pain, often described as a deep muscle ache in the upper front and outer thigh, resolves on its own over time, as the body remodels (the femoral cortex thickens) to equilibrate this transition area. Surgery is very seldom necessary.

    Hoping that is the case!!
