Comment from: Nurseshorti, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: June 12

I had core decompression surgery 2 years ago for aseptic necrosis. I still have hip pain when I sit or stand/ walk too much. I occasionally get the catch and groin pain but with rest it goes away. I will have to have a hip replacement but I am trying to delay it for as long as possible. I'm 52 with about 14 years until retirement.

I have advanced aseptic necrosis but my surgeon refuses to operate on my hip or broken knee saying the risk of infection is too high. As a result my leg is deformed and I can no longer walk. I am 54 with complex health issues including SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus) and permanent prednisolone use.
