Just found your Blog and have to answer “Is there some good news amongst the bad” and the answer is a resounding NO.
My Biomet Magnum has caused horrific complications from metallosis.
My chromium was 20 and cobalt was 17.
Both were many times higher than the accepted rate, and my symptoms are severe, even after a revision.
I have numerous problem with the hip but the vision and hearing changes continue to worsen.
Please don’t think this is an acceptable device, and please don’t let your readers think it’s what they should have put in.
It’s hell to live with and I probably can’t have another revision, so my problems with the Biomet will be ongoing for life.
I am 50 yrs old and that stinks!
