What happens when a titanium shoulder implant gets loosened and/or infected? What are the treatment options?

Posted by Kat

I am a 43 year old white female.  I have had multiple titanium implants including my left hip, a right shoulder hemi, and a left shoulder resurfacing (titanium cap).  My left shoulder has been increasingly painful for some time now.  A bone scan revealed a heavily increased blood flow there.  I was told it could mean either the titanium has loosened, or my shoulder could be infected.  I would like to know what to expect and what my options are.  Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
