WELL I JUST TURNED 30 YEARS OLD YESTERDAY 2-22-00. I WAS DIAGNOSED BACK IN JUNE OF 1999 WITH AVASCULAR NECROSIS STAGE 4.MY LAST XRAY'S WERE DONE 2 WEEK'S AGO THE DR. TOLD ME MY RIGHT HIP IS OVER HALF GONE,AND MY LEFT ABOUT A THIRD OF THE WAY GONE.MY TROUBLE IS I WAS INJURED ON THE JOB AND HAD TO HAVE BACK SURGERY AND THE WORKERS COMP.DR. SAID THAT AVASCULAR NECROSIS TAKES YEARS TO DEVELOP SO IT WAS NOT RELATED TO MY BACK INJURY.SO WORKERS COMP. WOULD NOT PAY FOR MY SERGURIES.SO WITHOUT INSURANCE OR THE FUNDS TO PAY FOR MY OWN SERGURIES I WAS HUNG OUT TO DRY.BUT I FINALLY SAVED ENOUGH MONEY TO GET A 2ND OPINI0N OF MY OWN.AND THIS DOCTOR WENT OFF WHEN I TOLD HIM WHAT THE WORKERS COMP. DR. HAD SAID. HE IMEDIATLEY WANTED ALL MY PRIOR XRAYS AND MEDICAL RECORDS.HE THEN DONE SOME FURTHER RESEARCH TO FIND THAT IT IS MOST LIKLEY ALL THE STEROID'S &STEROID BLOCKS THAT I HAD BEEN GIVEN HAS MORE THAN LIKLEY CAUSED THE AVSCULAR NECROSIS AND MOST DEFINETALY ENHANCED IT.SO HE AND MY ATTORNEY HAVE JOINED FORCES.SO MAYBE IN THE NEAR FUTURE I WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE MY SURGERIES DONE.
