There have been major recalls on many different metal on metal hip replacements. I'm trying to find details, but having trouble finding anything that doesn't bring me to a lawyer's website for class action lawsuits. But I just wanted to bring it to the attention of anybody who may have had a hip replacement in the last few years, or has a loved one who did. My dad did, and his hips are some of the ones recalled, so he will likely have to go through another surgery (and this one will be worse than the first was).
Just my PSA for the night :)
