The "Cement" Revision is exactly what it says.....the entire
implant is "made of cement", not cemented into place.
They either put this cemented one in which is treated with antibiotics
or else nothing at all......I was glad Philadelphia put something in
temporarily. It was in for 10 weeks.
I had intravenous antibiotics for 6 weeks and oral antibiotics for 4
weeks while it was in.
I was not allowed to apply full weight on it and was on a walker &
crutches the entire time. He never said but I don't think they put a cup
back in until the permanent revision (I don't see one).
