I had my THR on 9/28/00. Classic symptoms of a faulty acetabular cup occurred. Bone scan showed "NO HEALING" and we scheduled a revision for 2/22/01. There is such a difference when you get a "good" part. I am pain free. I believe that rehap is necessary for complete healing. My doctor thought I'd be better doing my therapy at home since I knew exactly what I was supposed to be doing. I encourage you to go ahead with the revision. Now, I'm trying to deal with Sulzer! Lots of prayers.
