Woman links symptoms to DePuy defects

Posted on September 22nd, 2011 No Comments

A Huntsville, Alabama woman recently share her story of how she linked symptoms she was experiencing for 2 years to her recalled DePuy hip implant.

The woman says she received a DePuy hip implant after the tissue around her hip died due to an injury she suffered in a car accident in 2006.  Last year, the makers of the hip implant, Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics, recalled the hip replacement after discovering its multiple defects.

For about 2 years, the woman says she was experiencing nausea and a mix of other symptoms that were a mystery to doctors she saw.  Then, she says she saw an advertisement on TV in 2010 stating that DePuy was about to recall one of their hip replacements.

After doing some research on the internet, the woman found that the metal-on-metal hip implant can release metal ions into the blood stream.  She says, “When I read it was like nausea, chronic diarrhea, headaches, everything I had been going through for 2 years.”

The woman scheduled an appointment with her doctor and requested they test for cobalt and chromium levels in her blood.  Tests revealed that she had unusually high amounts of the metal in her system and she is planning to join in a lawsuit against DePuy.
