Bone Cysts from worn prosthesis

Does anyone in the hip group have any experience with the formation of cysts? My surgeon finds my x-rays fine, with no loosening even through I complain of pain.

He sees I can't walk anymore and when he does the surgery he finds a large cyst behind the metal cup. He has to repair the hole with bone from the bone bank then changes the plastic parts. I guess cysts don't show up from behind the metal cups.

I heal well and am always allowed to put weight on my leg after 6 weeks (as its not cemented) when the bone heals. Please let me know... Contact at:
