    I only know one person who had both done, and they waited along time to have the first one done, so the are convinced that it put extra pressure on the other one.

    You can become a member of the horray club,if you have the third one done,

    Depends on the bone degeneration. My mother got one at 80. Better quality of life now.

    Not that likely,and a hip joint called the Birimingham hip replacment,i beleve is quite long lasting,
