I also had the metal on metal replacement, surgery was October 9, 2000. My surgeon has done almost a thousand hip replacements, but this is only the second metal-on-metal he has done. I am 48 and hope to get many years from this device.
It is now 7 weeks post op, and I still have pain, and walk with a cane, but have not use any pain medication since week 3. I went back to work at three weeks (I have a desk job) and managed OK, but it wasn't easy going back that soon.
I still don't have the strenght to walk without a cane, but hope that comes along soon. My goal is to be golfing within the next two months
