The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "We are strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant from 2005, to early 2010, to ask if it was a ASR DePuy hip implant, out of fear the family member may not want to mention discomfort, or serious pain. Recalled ASR DePuy implant victims are not just limited to senior citizens. These artificial hip implants were also sold to young adults, or middle aged adults as the athletic hip implant. Even if you are not yet having a problem with a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, we want to know who you are, so we can monitor your condition." The group says, "we know there are 30,000+ of US ASR DePuy hip implant recipients, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get these people identified."

Important Note:The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have learned the makers of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant have been writing recipients of this hip implant, and offering to pay their co-pays for the replacement of this hip implant-what an insult." They say, "In reality, recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant might be owed hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, and we find this manufacturers letter campaign to be nothing short of reprehensible. Offering to pay a co-pay-when the victim could be handicapped, or crippled for life?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant possible failure include, pain in the hip region, problem while walking or the inability to walk, swelling of the hip, discomfort in the hip area, and lack of flexibility in the hip area.
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "tragically the Internet is loaded with misleading ads about ASR DePuy hip implant compensation, lawsuits, or class actions; unfortunately most of the attorneys, or law firms advertising for help with the ASR DePuy hip implant failures are middlemen marketing law firms-not the actual trial law firms that will prosecute these cases." They say, "we want to make certain all ASR DePuy hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms, or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients-period-no middleman marketing law firms, or attorneys."
