Hello I'm 74 years old male. In year 2000 I took prednisone to treat my BOOP (Bronchiolitis Obliteran Organizing Pneumonia). I left from the doctor in 1 year and I developed hip joint necrosis. In 2004 I had hip joint replaced. Now my medical problems are Pulmonary Fibrosis, Osteoporosis and OA. I'm taking alendronate 70mg and tramadol 50mg.
In January 2018 prednisone 5mg was prescribed. I feel strong, shortness of breathing improved. I wonder how much risk of getting another Necrosis.
