Linda May-Bowser's left hip.
This is the second THR on my left hip, a revision done on October 7,
1996. It was manufactured by DePuy and is titanium.
The metal band/ring around the top of the femur was to hold a fracture
in place so that it could heal. The fracture occurred when the doctor
removed my old prosthesis.
