Re: my metal on metal hip replacement clicks when I bend

i have two birminghams, the oldest is 5 years this month and the other is 10 months younger. both of mine kind of twang slightly at certain angles but give me no other signs that they are there, no pain and no restrictions. i imagine twangs and clicks are something to be expected, unless you're having other problems too.
