    Possible hip metallosis

    Ive had both hips replaced(15 years and 13 years ago). Iíve been having pain on the outside of hip and in groin and pain during hip flexion and difficulty going up and down stairs for over a year. Been to PT then decided to have my OS check out my hips. I got a not so nice surprise. It could be metal shavings since I have a metal on metal implant. I had an MRI and blood work. If metal shavings show up then a hip revision will need to be done.
    Has anybody had this problem..??

    Re: Possible hip metallosis

    I, too have metallosis. Found last December. I had groin pain and on the outside of my hip. I had this one done 2007. I had the right done April 2005. No problems with hip.
    They drew blood for chromium and it was twice the norm.
    Iíve had a cortisone injection into Iliopsoas bursa. I also have groin pains that wonít go away a hip revision is in my fit
