My Mom had hip replacement, then complications. He kept telling her that her pain was normal. When it worsened, he said pain was from degenerative disc, not hip. Disregarded her concerns; no blood tests! She developed a large seroma. She went to another doctor, who suspected infection. A simple blood test confirmed it. Remove infected hip. Treat infection. Repeat surgery! He said if a patient goes a year without a diagnosed infection, it won't count on the surgeon's stats as surgically related.
