Now really for Op this is not an issue, at 25 replacement is not an option.

I just met up with a younger person who had a THR at 54 by a high profile surgeon who did NOT take insurance so she thought she was going with the best. She's crippled now raising two little children and wearing braces and in a lot of pain. Read her story on a review of the surgeon and sent her a note, she replied back today.

So yes there are many botched surgeries. The body is never the same after so many of these surgeries. And yes, some do turn out good, so you don't have to go there as I know you will.
you are continuing to conflate failed surgery with botched surgery. We aren't robots where a part can be replaced with an identical part. Sometimes, the surgery can be performed correctly but the outcome is not the desired one. That is not a botched surgery, but it is the more common explanation for ending up with a less than desired outcome.

You don't live with it, call it failed or botched of whatever, I'm partially disabled from this surgery so I think I can call it as I see and live with it. I feel the surgeon did a botched job as I was his last patient on a Friday afternoon and he was in a rush to leave for the weekend. That's how I see it...You have no idea on it all. This is mess is with me 24/7.

It wasn't a total failure as I no longer have the groin pain which I initially went for the surgery....so what is it failed or botched.....doesn't matter what words I use.

My whole right side of body is out of alignment majorally.

I was not referring to your personal situation, because of course I don't know any of the details. But you keep using botched surgery as a general term. Your surgery may have been botched, I have no idea. But not all surgeries that don't result in the desired outcome are botched - that was my point.

You should not stay off working out your legs. Walk in water and swim in the pool. I ate lots of chicken feet and pig's trotters that contain lots of collagen.
