What are your Metal Levels?
« on: March 21, 2014, 02:48:53 AM »
I'm really curious about what metal levels people have!  What are your levels?  How do your hips feel?  Bilater/unilateral?  Doctor?

Thanks for your help and input!

I apologize, figures from memory, but are between .5 and 1.1 for cobalt and chromium. Two years after first hip, pre second hip. Same or lower than gen pop. Dr. Gross indicated that this is happening a lot with the lower angles.
RHR April 2012.
LHR March 2014.

 :)   Cobalt 191 nmol/L. or 0.191 ppm
        Chromium 147 nmol/L or 0.147 ppm.
I think this is correct for ppm.  March 2017 2 years after op.

Perfect I was told. Conserve plus

From memory, the first test on my left hip was done about two years after surgery, and the numbers were between 1.5 and 3. They dropped in the following years, and since about year six they have been consistently reported as less than 1.  My right hip was just done, so the first test will not be for two years.
