Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

Total hip replacement (b)(6) 2005. (b)(6) months later, hip joint begins clunking, and i experienced difficulty in walking. This has been a 4 year nightmare. I have had tests, been to other doctors and surgeons. Finally, this past (b)(6) 2011, i saw dr. (b)(6) in (b)(6). After bloodwork and aspiration of the hip, i have metallosis and am scheduled for a revision on (b)(6). Not a day too soon. I can hardly walk and experience pain almost every day. My hip, a smith and nephew has not been recalled yet, so the entire expense of this surgery is on me. I lost my insurance coverage when the premiums went through the roof and i could no longer afford it ((b)(6) per year). When i tried to get cheaper coverage, i was denied because of my hip. I always had health insurance. I was a (b)(6), but now i cannot work. I contacted an attorney and was informed that the hip i have is exempt because it was approved by you, the fda. The hip is a birmingham anthology femoral component, bhr acetabular cup, modular femoral head, and modular head sleeve. Please tell me what to do next, and what, if any recourse i have. I am.
