Again depend upon what kind of prosthesis you have in now, cemented or not cemented, bone quality of the remaining bone, your general physical condition.

In brief: Yes
Many people who have had a hip prosthesis for a long duration of time will have deterioration of the prosthesis or one of its components.
A new prosthesis can be placed. The duration of recovery is usually about the same as the original hip replacement.
