Now let’s go to a question from a woman who had a hip replacement surgery a couple years ago.
Recently I have been having pain and swelling in my hip. There is also this weird, squeaky noise every once in a while. I have seen on the news where some hip implants were being recalled because people were having problems with them. Do you think I need a lawyer in case my hip replacement was one of the recalled hips? – Donna in Marietta
Donna – thanks for the question. I’m sorry to hear about the problems you are experiencing now from your hip implant. I would encourage anyone that is having complications from any surgery – whatever the reason for the surgery – to get in to see the doctor as soon as possible. This goes well beyond whether or not you have a legal claim for your injuries and complications.

The two biggest recalls garnering the most media attention were:

The specific hips recalled were the DePuy ASR and some DePuy Pinnacle models.

(2) The other big hip recall involves the Stryker Corporation.

The Stryker Recall was made in June 2012.
Why were these hips recalled?
Because metal ions were shearing off of the cup in which the ceramic ball of the hip was placed, causing these tiny metal fragments to lodge in the surrounding tissue or to be released into the bloodstream.
Some of the problems associated with the Stryker hip implants include:
. Pain

. Pseudo tumors
. Heavy metal poisoning
. Revisionary surgery
These implants may also cause a potentially very serious health condition called Metallosis.
Here are just a few of the health issues people can experience from metallosis:

. Neurological issues

. Thyroid problems
. Gastrointestinal disorders
