Hip Implant Recall Questions -- FREE Report Answers Common Questions And Helps Hip Replacement Recall Victims Get Compensation
Tens of thousands of hip replacement surgery patients are stressed out about whether their implant has been affected by one of the recent recalls. They’re trying to find out how they can tell if theirs is a faulty implant, and what to do if they discover that they too have been caught up in one of the hip replacement recalls. Now, they can get a FREE report and have their questions answered by the Hip Recall Help Team.
They had undergone the invasive and painful procedure in hopes of being able to walk again pain free. Instead, a steadily rising percentage of them have discovered to their dismay, that they’re now in more pain than ever before, and are likely facing more surgery.
Since hip surgery is inherently painful, it can be hard to tell whether pain after surgery is “normal” or whether it is caused by implant-related complications. Here are some pointers to help patients figure out when they are likely to have problems with their implant:
* The pain does not get better within a few weeks or months after the surgery, or starts to get worse
* The hip area becomes swollen and more tender
* Increased difficulty walking
* Grinding or popping noises coming from the hip area.
* The joint becomes loose or less stable
Not all symptoms are as obviously related to the hip replacement implant. Some of the recalled implants cause a different kind of problem - metal toxicity -- which is caused by the metal ball rubbing against the metal socket, releasing microscopic metal particles into the blood stream and surrounding tissues.
Symptoms for metal toxicity can be subtle and easily missed -- or attributed to other causes. They include nausea, fatigue, memory loss, and other systemic symptoms.
Says Robert Clarke of the Hip Recall Help Team: “If you have one of these implants, specifically a DePuy ASR implant or a Zimmer Durom Cup implant, you should have your metal levels checked regularly, whether or not you have symptoms, and you should also get legal advice.”
“Many patients wait far too long before they get that legal advice,” Clarke points out. “It’s really sad to see someone finally go to see a lawyer only to discover that the statute of limitations has expired. At that point, no lawyer is going to be able to help.”
Personal injury attorney Richard Cranwell and Robert M. Clarke, members of the Hip Recall Help Team, are committed to ensuring that hip recall patients are well informed about their rights, and that they get help from a competent lawyer -- before the statute of limitation runs out and renders their case moot.
Clarke urges anyone who has had a hip replacement procedure and is still in pain, possibly months or even years after the surgery, to find out if they have one of the recalled DePuy ASR XL implants (or a Zimmer Durom Cup implant, or a Stryker Trident implant). But whether or not they have one of these specific recalled implants, if they’re in pain, they should get help.
They also need to know how and where to get the help, and the steps they have to take to get compensated. “There are seven huge mistakes that have derailed many medical malpractice cases,” he adds, “and in our free special report, we’ll tell you what they are and how to avoid them.”
