I have recently found out I have avn in both hips. I am only 25yrs. old. Doctors tell me it is from steroids. I was given steriods when I was going through my cacncer treatments. I unfortunately had to take quite a bit,because I relapsed. My R is worse than my L. I am in alot of pain! But x-rays show that the bone has not collapsed yet. Since I am younger my Doctor wants to hold out as long as possible. Should I wait or have it done? Does this sound fimaliar to anyone else?
