Diagnosed with AVN due to SCT


Hi, I have SCT and have recently been diagnosed with AVN in both hips with the underlying cause being that I have SCT. Aswell as early signs of Arthritis My consultant states that steroid Injection could make it worse and he has referred me to see a surgeon to dicuss options and receive advice regarding having a operation has anyone else been diagnosed with AVN SCT related and have had a operation or is there anything else that would help without me going down the operation route.
