HIP MATERIALS

thrdeviceWHAT ARE YOU MADE OF?

It is becoming increasingly important to know if you are compatible….with YOURSELF!

What is inside of you — Metal, Plastic, Ceramic… is important to know. Request your medical records from the hospital you had your surgery in (doctors usually don’t have this information to send you). Keep a file with all of your “ingredients” as you become more bionic.

We will be covering more on this topic, as it is an important one and is not always spoken about when interviewing a surgeon, or choosing between components that are going into your body. We can see examples of this with the metal on metal controversy and hip replacement recalls.

Become your own Health Advocate or find someone to advocate for you!

 

 

 

JOURNALING THROUGH YOUR HIP REPLACEMENT…

Keeping track of your feelings, thoughts and advancements are a great way to grow through the entire hip replacement process.
