My husband just went for a sonogram because his creatinine is 1.9. They said he has fluid by his kidney and asked if he had any implants. He had two hip replacements over ten years ago.

I need a new hip in my polio hip but I am afraid since I broke the femur in this same leg a long time ago and they had to take part of my other hip bone to lay around the break since the polio bone won t grow on it s own or that is what the Dr. said. I also grow scar tissue fast and have not had one good surgery because of this. The pain is very bad but don t want to do anything to my hip if the bones won t grow on their own.
