He has avascular necrosis in his hip. Any experiences to share? He is in terrible pain most days but powers through and is still working... regular doc gave him lortab 5's which barely cut the pain. We are waiting (over a week now) to hear from the p.m. clinic. He is 39, so his doctor wants to wait on a hip replacement for now. ANY thoughts or experiences you can share on pain management or this disease are welcome... we are feeling pretty hopeless right now. Thanks all!
