FAQ

Is Depression Common After a Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement?

Depression is a mental illness that can be extremely debilitating to its sufferers. Many of us feel sad or blue at times. Depression is more than having an off day. If you suffer with depression, you find it hard to function in your daily life. You might often have feelings of despair, hopelessness, fatigue and guilt. The CDC estimates 1 in 10 American adults suffer from depression.

Diagnosis

When diagnosing depression, physicians look for patients showing a number of the following symptoms:

•    Lack of energy and fatigue most days
•    Difficulty concentrating and making decisions
•    Loss of interest in most things in life nearly every day
•    A feeling of being weighted or slowed down
•    Restlessness
•    Depressed mood the majority of the day, especially the morning
•    Daily feelings of guilt and worthlessness
•    Excessive sleeping or inability to sleep (insomnia)
•    Marked weight gain or weight loss
•    Frequent thoughts of death or suicide (not fearing death)

A patient needs to have several of these symptoms simultaneously, nearly every day, for at least 2 weeks straight to be considered to suffer depression. Also, these symptoms need to cause impairment in the patient's ability to function on a daily basis and not be caused by outside issues such as drugs, medication or medical conditions.

The Risk

A person suffering from many of these symptoms can find it hard to do things that many of us do daily, such as work, spend time with family and friends, shop and care for pets and loved ones. Their relationships and general livelihood can greatly suffer. Those counting on them can miss out on having needs met.

There are often physical symptoms of depression as well. Depression effects chemicals within the brain that not only effect mood but also pain. Patients suffering depression can often feel back pain, appetite changes, joint pain, gastrointestinal problems, sleep disturbances and slowed speech or movement.

A further concern for depression is the risk of suicide. Those suffering depression have a far greater risk of attempting suicide. Any mention or discussion of suicide should be taken very seriously and professional help should be sought immediately.

Depression and Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement

It is not unusual to suffer from depression after hip replacement surgery. This can be due to having to suddenly rely on others, loss of mobility, discomfort or medication. Typically these feelings should pass but do keep your physician up to date on how you are feeling.

There is potential for depression specifically caused by metal-on-metal hip replacement due to metal sensitivity or a bodily reaction to the metal ion fragments released into the body by friction of the implant. This type of depressive symptom typically presents later or lasts far longer than simple post-operative depression. These patients usually have no history of depressive symptoms. It is considered to be a concern and should be reported to your doctor immediately.
