Hip replacement went wrong?

Gosh, this is bad! Have you heard of someone you know with a hip replacement surgery went wrong? It was estimated that over 90,000 such cases was recalled due to a faulty DePuy Hip Implant. To make things worse, these people might need a second and third correction surgery. Thank God when my sister had her knee surgery, everything went well. Well, she was bruised and limping for 2 weeks after the surgery but thank God she had a full recovery. Can't even imagine her limping because of some faulty implant! That's scary.

If I were one of these unlucky people, I will sue the company to the very last dollar they have. Make them bankrupt. Oh well, that's not quite possible actually. But at least make them pay. Get the best hip recall lawyer there is ever. My Texas Truck Accident Attorney might even know where I can get help from. Help is so on the way. Find them here.

I’ve read many posts on this Johnson & Johnson hip replacement recall and I personally think it’s a very sad episode. A hip replacement failure can mean serious injuries for the patient, aside from the revision surgery that the patient will very likely face. Patients should attempt to be very watchful for certain signs that their hip replacement device is failing. For example, swelling of the hip area, popping or clicking, pain on a regular or chronic basis, loosening or implant dislocation, and even fractures are all fairly good signs that the device is about to fail or has failed. It’s good to know that a new registry is now set up to track problems with hip and knee implants across the United States in light of the recent 90,000 recall cases from Johnson&Johnson.
