Hi Im 41 years old and was diagnosed with AVN a in July of 2015. I have “maintained” over the past few years walking ok even running from time to time. Shortly after by first doctors appointment and learning of my problem I decided to take the advice of a doctor who was friends with my PMP and he said to hold on as long as possible. They both believed I was so young that my hip would not last me the rest of my life.
Well 2 years later I think it’s that time. I have pain walking around and I’m at the point where I don’t want to go out because I fell like I may fall. I work in IT in an office setting and even that is scary for me now. I’m was a runner most of my adult life and serious for 3 years before my diagnosis. I’d like to go back so I’m looking for suggestions of doctors, clinics, Pre op training, and materials. I’m not rich but I have good insurance and have been saving so I can travel if need be.
Note: I currently live in the Detroit area. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
