Customer Question

I had hip replacement (both hips) but the right side was replaced with a DuPuy metal on metal type. Blood tests and Xrays reflect all is well except that leg has many blemishes, is always warm and is always slightly swollen.
Could there be any connection between the replacement and particulars of my right leg?

can you upload a clear jpg photo of these "blemishes"

most likely the type of hip metal or metal implant would not cause these "blemishes" on the skin
