My knee is getting worse

Hi all

I had AVN and i had a core decompression surgery on both knees and ankles last april. I was hoping that it will be better so i can walk without the stick. Last October i felt abit better that i bought a foldable sticks and i felt i was having my independence back. In November i had a flareup and had to start taking steroids again 20mg.

Since starting the steroids my knee has started hurting. Especially my right knee, i can barely stand in church. I had to get my crutches on my left hand to take the weight off my right knee. Crutches give me higher support but now my left hip is beginning to hurt too. I am considering getting a mobility scooter to be able to move around in the shops. I feel am too young to use it but my mobility says otherwise.

I have my next orthopedic appointment in June. My last appointment, i had an x-ray and they said the knee was not collapsing . My surgeon said my lupus may be the cause of the pain. Things have gotten worse since then even with my regular swimming and hydrotherapy, still my situation is not good. I do not know what to do, should i manage till June or should i caฤบl them and tell them what is happening?

Pls has anyone had AVN and did it reoccure after surgery. Thanks and God bless

Regards

  • Am vvvv much feeling for you ljeasike. Am vvv sorry things are especially rough. I have no experience of AVN and the sort of surgery you've had, so I can't be much help. But I'm sure someone here will be helpful. I just want to wish you every best wish

  • Thanks alot . But it is so discomforting, i cant seat with my legs straight down, i have to stretch it out or raise it up in order to be comfortable. I went swimming 2day , 2mro i will go 4 my renal appointment so i wont get out of bed till 11.30am. I beginning to measure my steps and not to over walk. I am seriously thinkg of getting a mobility scooter but i will have to wait until i get the quotation for the fencing of my garden. Thanks still for ur concern. Take care and God bless
