Hip revision surgery with RA


Has anyone had a hip replacement come loose after three months? I have RA which is sero negative and not well controlled on Abatacept. Very frightened of revision surgery so any advice welcome please. 😩

Thank you Silvi, was it successful and did it take you much longer to recover than the first time? Lx

I recovered very well when it was done by a different surgeon. I saw him earlier this year as i had a lot of swelling round the knee and they gave me a good check over and reported it was RA and not the joint itself.xxx

Cheers Silvi, we do have a lot to face don’t we. Stay as well as you can and hope it’s a sunny day for you. Lx

Sorry, I haven’t any information on revisions but when my husband had his hip done last year I found this site and forum very useful - you might find something on here - there is a U.K. part to it.


Thank you, I’ll have a look tonight. Hope your husband is still doing well. L

Hes doing really well thank you - can’t understand why he left it so long!
