Yes, I too had THR on the right hip with Sulzer Medica. I got the call from my doctor two weeks ago about the recall. I was shocked. Especially, since I work in a hospital and was able to get the best orthopedic doctor. I had surgery on July 17th, and it's been almost 6 months. I still have a great deal of pain and have a hard time lifting my leg up straight. I still can't tie my shoe. I would like to hear from anyone else who is in this situation. Is anyone considering having this particular part replaced? I can't see dealing with this for any long period of time. This is why I had the operation in the first place. I am open to any info.
