Customer Question

I have very high Cobalt and Chromium levels 221 and 22 and am due to have a hip revision on June 2nd, 16. Do you think I should see a hematologist before the surgery and delay it?
Have a metal on metal Dupuy Johnson Johnson hip in 2009has not been too troublesome am I getting it replaced unnecessarily. The other hip I had revised in 2015 and is more troublesome. Am I doing the right thing or should I do more research about my blood and any repercussions or am I unreasonably alarmed and going in for more surgery than I need to? Thank you very confused at least I'm walking now and sick of hip surgeries. Age 68 started at 50 had always been fit? Help?
