One Day I was 34, fit and able to run 20 miles a week. Suddenly at the end of September 2011 I started having knee pain. A month later I was unable to walk and was wheelchair bound.
I went to two Orthopedic Specialists, had x-rays, two MRI’sand a bone scan. I was told I either had bone cancer or Osteonecrosis/Avascular Necrosis. After having four pieces of bone removed from my right femur it was confirmed that I did in fact have Osteonecrosis/Avascular Necrosis.
I asked my Orthopedic Surgeon why I got this disease and he said it was idiopathic. I was determined to find out why I got Osteonecrosis/Avascular Necrosis and after calling specialists all over the country and digging for research I finally found out why. On this blog I am sharing my journey to find answers and the research I have discovered.
