Jeff Goodall's Hip Resurfacing and Revision 2004

December 18, 2011

I had hip resurfacing on my right hip in late 2004. Everything seemed fine for about two years then I continued to have considerable clunking. I went to Physio and he was concerned enough to send me back to surgeon. I was told clunking was normal. Two years later I was on my knees reaching to pull a weed in the garden and my hip dislocated. I had a THR as there had been a lot of damage due to the loosened acetabular cup. My recovery was very slow and I still have considerable weakness in this leg and my quality of life has suffered dramatically.

I am an otherwise fit 48 year old with the hips of a 70 year old. My resurfacing was a Cormet-Stryker product and there was suspicion of a defective part as my bone had not fused with the cup.

Is there anyone with a similar story or advise? I am young and concerned of future failure in my left hip which was resurfaced just 30 months ago is paired up with a wonky THR on the right.
