Donald, Go to the Discussion Board and use the search panel under "AVN" and you'll find lots of posted notes on avascular necrosis. I'm 51 and had my left THR 6 weeks ago, 3 years after the physicians told me I needed the surgery. I was on Celebrex and glucosamine and did very well with pain control but I got fatigued too quickly and just didn't want to walk with a cane and be limited in my activities for the rest of my life. You, alone will know when it's time for surgery and just like the rest of us, you'll know it's the best decision you've ever made. The best of luck to you!
