FAQ

Understanding Hip Health After a Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Surgery

You got a hip replacement because you were having problems with your natural hip. Unfortunately, artificial hips are less reliable and sturdy than healthy natural hips, so you’ll have some special concerns to keep an eye out for. Be sure to watch for the following issues after your surgery.

Risks Associated With Major Surgery, Regardless of What Type of Surgery
Anybody who undergoes major surgery should watch out for allergic or otherwise adverse reactions to anesthesia, heart problems, infection of the surgery site and blood clots. Your doctor will tell what to look for with each of these concerns.

Understanding How an Artificial Hip Works and the Associated Risks
Your artificial hip is designed to work just like a natural hip joint, but the device is not as stable or reliable as your original hip. No matter what kind of hip replacement implant you choose, you will run the risks of dislocation (the ball can slip out of the socket if tilted the wrong way or pressured), joint infection, damaged nerves or the damage of the device itself. You will need to take your time recuperating from the operation and then be careful when lifting heavy objects, bending more than 90 degrees and exercising.

In some cases, people end up with legs that are two different lengths (after a hip replacement procedure), and in other cases, some people experience bone loss. Ask your doctor what signs to keep an eye on so you’ll know how to prevent unnecessary problems that can result from uneven legs or bone loss.

Issues Specific to Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Surgery
You will want to ask your doctor about signs of metal ion sensitivity, which can show up in a variety of ways. This is because metal-on-metal hip implants can raise the level of metal ions in your body, and some people don’t react well to this. However, many people have metal implants and experience no problems whatsoever.

Your doctor will have you watch for the following symptoms:
•    Skin rash
•    Heart problems
•    Kidney problems
•    Mood alterations
•    Thyroid problems

All of these medical issues may or may not be related to the increase of metal ions from your metal-on-metal hip replacement.

Signs Your Hip Joint Isn’t Working Smoothly
Talk to your doctor is you notice any of the following symptoms:
•    Hip pain
•    Unusual swelling in your hip
•    You need to limp
•    Pain due to uneven legs
•    You hear noises coming from your hip joint

Only your doctor will be able to determine if you are having problems that are related to the new hip joint. Don’t be afraid to speak to your doctor about any and all concerns.
