a ceramic on crosslinked polypropylene that I received last Feb. It's been working like a gem, no problems whatsoever.

However, I also have a large head MOM that I received 4 years ago on the other side that has also performed flawlessly since the surgery.

I'm not sure how much contacting a lawyer can help you. If you are sensitive to the metals that they used for your first THR, then there's really no way of predicting this. I know that some use allergies to jewelry as benchmarks, but from what I understand, this is a poor indicator as to metal allergies.

          ASR system that was recalled, not the trilock. Different systems. The Dupuy trilock has a 98% success rate. Why are you advocating something that a quick google will tell you what the recall is? The... more
