HI, I HAD MY FIRST THR ON MY RIGHT HIP IN JAN. 1979, I WAS 27 AT THE TIME. THERES BEEN 2 REVISIONS SINCE AND I AM EXPECTING A 4 TH AFTER ISEE THE DR. THIS COMING MONDAY. I DO NOT PROCLAIM IN ANY WAY OR FORM TO GIVING MEDICAL ADVICE,BUT CAN EXPLAIN SOME THINGS TO YOU FROM MY EXPERIENCES. I'VE FOUND THAT THE THR WILL LAST APROX. 10 TO 15 YEARS DEPENDING ON YOU LIFESTYLE, BUT I'M NOW TOLD THAT PEOPLE CAN EXPECT 20 OR LONGER. I HOPE SO. MY 3 RD HIP HAS LASTED 14 YEARS. I'VE HAD MANY ACQUAINTANCES ASK OVER THE YEAR ABOUT THR AND MY ANSWER HAS ALWAYS BEEN CONSISTENT. I TELL EACH INDIVIDUAL NOT TO HAVE SURGERY UNLESS THEIR EVERY DAY LIFE IS CHANGED AND THEY CAN'T FUNCTION PROPERLY. I AM HAPPY FOR YOU THAT YOU FELT THE JOY OF MOVEMENT WITHOUT PAIN. ONLY WE KNOW!!!!! WEAR IT WISELY AND ALWAYS WATCH YOUR STEP... GOOD LUCK. COBY
