As the subject says, I have SLE and as a result of it and predesone I have hip necrosis. How do you live with this? A bone compression is being suggested. Has anyone gone thru this? What about the pain afterwards? Recovery time? Will I need crutches or a wheel chair as some literature suggests? If I do get the compression, will I need a THR afterwards?

I am very depressed about this and cry daily. Any one out there who can help....
