My name is Ann Morrison and in October 2010, I was diagnosed with metallosis, a form of systemic metal poisoning as a result of complications from a double hip replacement. My case of metallosis has caused massive loss of muscle tissue throughout my body as well as damage to my neural system. I have had 13 surgeries to try to reverse some of the damage caused to my body by this condition, but the damage has had a cascading effect upon my mobility, balance, strength and vision. Currently, I use various devices to assist with my mobility including lower extremity braces and a wheelchair when traveling longer distances. I frequently receive physical therapy and have appointments with specialists who treat my muscular lesions.
