Scott Ebert, left, and wife Molly Ebert pose for a portrait, December 19, 2012 in their Palm Beach, Florida home. Scott, 49, has suffered metal ion poisoning and been in constant pain since a now-recalled hip joint was implanted in him to alleviate his arthritis. The recalled Stryker modular joint apparently corroded almost immediately after it was installed.
