An unexpected change of plans.

I went to have x-rays of my hip this morning after yesterday morning’s mishap

After looking at the x-rays of my left hip, my doctor showed me how the poly liner in my new hip had somehow, inexplicably shifted out of position in the cup that holds it in place against my pelvic bone…

The friction that I was feeling in my hip was the stem head rubbing against the now out-of-position poly liner. Long story short, I have to undergo a total left hip revision surgery tomorrow at 3pm. It’s not the full total hip replacement surgery like before. From what I understand, they are just going to go in to replace the damaged poly liner and stem head. I’ll be staying overnight again but then afterward I should hopefully, be good to go once again. Fingers crossed. 😐πŸ₯🀞❀️
