Bob Morris xray
Linda,

Here is the pic, post op of my 2nd replacement. Also one of my face.

I am a 37year old male. I broke the grater troch off 3 weeks after the replacement because of osteolysis from my first replacement. I am now taking Fosamax to rebuild the bone and stop the Lysis. (this is only in a test group now. The FDA has not given the OK yet).

The kids at school thought my little talk was very cool.

I still have the femoral head that they took out in 1994 and the parts they just took out on 12/17/99. That, with the x-rays was a hit.

Thank you for your time writing back.

Hi Linda,

Kind of a good 1 day post op photo, thanks to my wife. I belong to a bicycle riding club and I had so much support from them that calling 50 people and telling the same surgery story, which I am really sick of by the way, over and over was to much and just sending out cards seemed kind of cold. Also a lot of them, although really sweet people don't have a clue, they ask if it is an outpatient thing. So taking your ideas I scan in the photo and e-mailed everyone a picture of Bob's Big Behind. Hopefully it will keep me from having to show my scar at parties and at the coffee shop. thanks for the great idea.

right hip scar

"I had a hip replacement that did not take on January 14, 1999,  because I did not have enough bone stock around where you put the ball into the socket.  Because of this my doctor put some bone grafts in and we are waiting to maybe have surgery at a future date.  However in the meantime,  my ball was cut off but I will still be able to walk by having scar tissue and muscle build up for my femur to rest in.  It has been 4 weeks since the doctor went in and removed the hip replacement and my ball that goes into the hip.  I would like to share this picture of my hip scar at 4 weeks post op."
