After several weeks of extreme pain in my right hip, I had an MRI to reveal Early AVN. I was on high doses of prednisone for 2 1/2 years and stopped taking it about 4 years ago. 6+ years ago I was diagnosed with dermomyocystis - a connective tissue disorder. What do I have in store? On Thursday I am seeing a Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in the hip. I am still taking various other meds (immunosuppressants) due to my first diagnois being an auto-immune disease. PS - Dermotomyocystis is under the umbrella of Muscular Dystropy. I am a 46 year old married female with 2 childern (14 & 10. Your input will be appreciated.
