Has any one experienced broken del mile wires in there thr. These ate the wires the surgeon places around the femur bone when the femoral stem is surgically implanted and fractures the femur bone. Linda has them on her home page in her x-rays. I have a total of three of them and two have brok and causes extreme isolated pain bilaterly. Would like to her from any one who has experienced this and how long can I wait before the pain gets to bad to the point I have to have them removed.
