I am new to board. Was recently diagnoised with avascular necrosis. I had a hip replacement 6yrs. ago and Drs. thought is was osteoporosis, now I need a shoulder replacement but they want me to hold off as long a possible because I am in my fifties and will have to be redone if I live to an elderly age. I have some osteo. and have fibromyalgia. Does any one know how to manage the avn and fibro together. Thank you so much for any help.
