I didn’t think I would ever be able to say it, but my Osteonecrosis (Avascular Necrosis) has not only not progressed, but has actually regressed.
It was so important that I found Dr. Glueck and had his treatment when I did. My orthopedic specialist showed me a side by side comparison of my knees before my treatment and after and the area of dead bone has considerably shrunk and has started to revascularize itself. I didn’t believe it until I saw it with my own eyes.
I was lucky that I caught my AVN in it’s early stages and lucky that I came across a doctor who knew well enough that my ‘idiopathic’ AVN could have been caused by clotting mutations. I firmly believe that if I had not gone on the three month course of anticoagulants I would not be posting this positive news today.
