i live in topeka ks and have a family of 4.i originally complained of deep aches in the thigh and knees about 6 mnths after my initial surgery,the dr naturally says it soft tissue healing so i continue to pop the vico,darvo never touched the pain.By then my right hip surgery was scheduled so the pain meds were flowing without to much grief from the drs but all the pharmacies had my #.every script was questioned.i felt like a criminal.but i digress as you know there are alot of xrays post-op and the mnths following.i had to continue those to justify the script refills when on one ray there was a light spot next to the bone abutting the stem that was different from the previous xrays.the dr said even then that it wasnt enough to warrant him to advise a revision.i made the call with no reservations.my first(left) was glued and so was my right.my third(left revision) was not glued and have had no worries with it since.the sad part is now i am getting the same kind of pain in my right as i did in my left when it went bad.
