Bad news Al

Bad news Al, your hip is obsolete. Just saw a story on Nine News that they’re trialing ceramic, better go and get a refund/reversal

Comments

I thought the older one's where ceramic,I'm sure Bob Brown told me that's what he had 10 years ago!..
I think the one I've got has a ceramic swivel but the fitting is titanium steel,not sure but I see the surgeon in 3 weeks so I'll ask him!...
Fark getting a reversal that pain can wait until this one wears out...:)

mate,I'll always surf.Once it's in your head about sharks it's all over!...:)
I googled that story,was it Peter Overton that was on 9 that had the story?If so they where just saying there is a new way of operating but they had the titanium steel fitting, I think they are just trialing it so far.They say you'll be up walking unassisted in 2 days,YEAH RIGHT,I'll believe that when I see it,I'm still struggling after 3 weeks!...

Yes Al, it was Peter Overton. I thought he said it was a new ceramic type and they were able to take out less bone leaving more of your original bone intact

it's also going to be a smaller cut(keyhole)and they hold back Tendons and Muscles to save cutting through them.The ceramic one's have been around for years Bob has one but looks like he may have to get his changed as the ceramic slowly leaks a toxin into your body apparently,I'll find out more off him when I see him,he went in for a knee last week..:(
Here's the one I got mate!...
