Hoping to make it to 5 years on my resurfaced hip…

I had my first resurfacing in Dec 2007 (left side). My second resurfacing was in Feb 2008 (right side). I had my left hip replaced in Dec 2008. My right hip has been deteriorating rapidly over the past 6 months or so. Each week it gets noticeably worse. I am due to see my doctor (the replacement doctor) in early November. I suspect the Xrays will show that I need to replace that hip soon. I am thinking that I may not make it a full 5 years on this resurfaced hip. But at least it has been a great 5-ish years. I do not regret having that surgery. But all evidence of it will be gone in a matter of months, just as happened on the other side.
