  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I am waiting for my 2nd revision (3rd attempt) to a supposed routine hip replacement on a 40 year old woman. We found out after the second attempt that as they put it "my bones were just too soft to hold the screws in place, even though I was keeping correct alignment, my bones were just soft." I said like osteoporosis???! They said no, no! Just. soft, like wet wood, from severe arthritis. You think someone would check this before surgery? Right? I don't know.
