I've also got advanced osteoarthritis in cervical and lumber spine. Have seen many specialists and all agree I had a severe and very rare reaction to a four day course of prednisolone. I had no prior or under lying medical issues. I am having a medic alert bracelet made up as have been told never again should I allow any steroids to enter my body . so where to from now. Still don't know what my future holds???
I had AVN in my left hip alone so I can't imagine the pain you must be suffering from with 4 major joints. They are going to have to be replaced. I've seen really amazing results with knees, but hips take a little longer (they appear to get knees and legs the same length but hips seem problematic).
I am 53 now when I was 38 my right leg felt like I had pulled a muscle or something ,I worked for the sheriff's dept.at the time and you had to drag me to a dr.but it got bad enough I went an that's how I found out I had avn the dr.said he could see it in my other hip also so I worked as long as I could and finally resigned and applied for disability once I got my disability I had my right hip replaced an 2 years later had my left one replaced,Morell of this story is I waited to long an now suffer from bad nerve damage the dr.said I should have had surgery sooner, so just fyi if you get avn have surgery asap it could have stopped some of the pain I'm in now.good luck
