I went to my GP complaning of no sense of smell, saw a surgeon and surgery was recomended, I was given a prescription for Prednisone, a steroid, this gave me some sense of smell, and here's the but, I had the operation and still could not smell, so more Prednisone, well the
upshot is that the
steroids have caused my Osteo-Necrosis, this is when the
heads of the
long bones die, so have now had core decompression on one hip and the other totally replaced.
