Hi, I'm Tom (Screen Name: 5150sick) Many of you already know me and know that I am disabled and live with debilitating pain from an automobile accident that happened in 1993. The results were two broken forearms (both bones), a broken right femur, shattered left hip and pelvis, broken right wrist and ankle, collapsed lung, and concussion. Everything healed except the left hip so I had it fused in 1994. Come 2005 my back was blown out from using it to walk instead of my left hip so I found a doctor that broke down the hip fusion and changed it into a hip replacement. I moved from Baltimore to Central Florida in 2009 Since then I have had to have not one but TWO hip revision surgeries where they replace the hip replacement. The first revision was because the stem part broke and the second was because the first one got infected. I figured I'd start this thread in case anybody else wants to share their experiences or to encourage one another if we are having painful days.
