Comment: Thanks for keeping this blog.  I got a pair of JNJ pinnacle implants in on 4/08 and had them revised last month. I was lucky, only had tissue damage with minimal bone loss.

I asked for blood tests in March of this year but metal tests were normal.  Wasn’t until I demanded that they for a florascope and aspiration a couple months ago that the mess in my joints was found.  Even the blood test they did just before the operation weren’t elevated.  One hip hurt but the other felt fine but both were a mess.

THE TAKEAWAY IS: BE SURE PEOPLE DEMAND ASPIRATION IF THEY HAVE A METAL HIP!

Thanks

Bill M
