I've had 17 surgeries trying to give or save my hip. I had two surg as a teen.june 2002 to feb 2003 a dr gave me 8 surgeries and my present dr 7. six were total hip replacements & 1 for reconstructure of the fractured femur after their 2nd attempt.My femur has crumbled about 3 inchines & the july surg did not take either. They say femur replacement is the only alternative. My sister has bone marrow cancer but they say I only have arthritis. I have never heard of cutting the bad femur bone away and replacing the femur with a rod. please help with your comments regarding femur replacemetn with metal.
Thanks for your reply's!
