Auto Immune and Surgical replacement of Implanted foreign bodies

JspaganoJJspagano Posts: 1

I need a hip replacement, but I'm so concerned about having "Mixed Autoimmune Disease" and rejecting the implanted parts, cements, etc.  I'd like to hear from anyone that can relate.

Thank you 

Jane

    I have not had a hip replacement, but there are several members here that have, I am sure some of those will be a long to comment, if you will go to the top right of your page to the search box, there are some interesting articles on the subject.

    welcome to arthritis-health and how to start using our system

    Have you been diagnosed with Mixed Autoimmune disease? Or, are you just concerned about a rejection?
    My case is a little different where I have a pain pump implanted along with a tube and catheter. I took a chance because we were out of options. That was 2 yrs. ago and I still have not had a problem.

    Also, have you discussed this concern with your doctor? Hopefully someone else will come along and give you more information.
    Take care and keep us posted.

    I have had both of my hips totally replaced with new ball/socket and stem.    That was over 6 years ago and I have not had any problems with my hip.

    But as Sandra stated, do you have any autoimmune disease?   That would be something if you did to talk to the surgeon.

    I did find, that the best surgeons always want to make sure during the hip surgery, that the leg lengths are identical.   When they are off just a bit, its an invitation to follow on problems.
