Mounting trouble with artificial hips
Two months after hip replacement surgery, Scott Ebert's leg started giving way. His joint began slipping. Razor blades of pain pierced his foot. An inexplicably large bruise grew along his calf. An excruciating burning feeling filled his hip. His ears rang. Doctor after doctor didn't know why. Finally, blood tests showed the metal from Ebert's artificial hip was leaching into his bloodstream.
