Avatar f tn 14 Months ago I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in both knees and Buritis in my hips. It came on suddenly and it is very painful. I have seen 2 specialists and have had 2 lots of steroid injections in both knees and one steroid injection in my right hip. I have been taking Meloxicam and painkillers. Today I have been to see a specialist with the view to having knee replacement surgery. After looking at my recent x rays he has informed me that I have Avascular Necrosis in both knees.

Avatar n tn In 2009 I underwent a total hip replacement of my right hip due to osteonecrosis. Earlier this year I started experiencing thigh pain on my left hip that is almost identical to the pain I had before the total hip replacement. I consulted an orthopaedic surgeon who ordered an xray. The xray showed that the femoral head had what looked like a diagonal flat stop across the top. I was told that it was osteoarthritis and a pain medication shot was ordered.

With the amount of morphine I take on a daily basis, I can feel pain again in my hip continuously again. That means it is probablytime to replace it. Hope all goes weel for you. The biggest thing is be very patient!!! It does take alot of time to heal and go through therapy after surgery.
Avatar n tn I have bulging discs and osteoarthritis and the avascular necrosis. The hip pain has been the worst of what I have experienced. The Dr's tell me having my hips replaced will cure most of the pain. I am now bone on bone , no cartiledge with cysts. I am just worried I have waited too long as now I have lost my muscle tone am not able to exercise at all now, sleeping more than an hour or so at a time is not possible most nights. My legs have a weird feeling now are numb and my feet and tingle.
