Cool osteonecrosis..

hello everyone.

most times, i need to look up med terms.....not this one....

after receiving the fifth and final Hyalgan injection (which, i regret to say, did nothing but give me little temporary releif following each one), my rheumatologist and i were handed my last m.r.i. report.

i got to start reading as she cleaned up.

now, i believe my orthopod is convinced i need to head to the bone saw and get a new joint. rheumy wanted to try the shots. i think i need the joint. i think she was starting to think replacement.

when i asked her about seeing possible osteonecrosis in the report, she looked at it fast and left the clean up job. she came back in a few minutes and politely gave me the bum's rush (we had been chatting).

i won't see her again 'til i finish the esi's at my lumbar spine she sent me for (i've had one and it ain't looking promising.....).

am i paranoid, or is there cause for concern?

i couldn't tell from what i was able to find at medicinenet or ***** whether it'll be in other places.

anyone know?

Re: osteonecrosis..


It really depends if your ON/AVN is trauma or steroid related. If steroid related you will have a window of about 10 yrs where it may appear in other joints.

check out the [url][/url] they also have listed a great support group.

I also have ON/AVN in my shoulder
