I have avascular necrosis in both my hips. I have had the core depression done on my right hip, which still hurts just as bad as before the surgery in June, 2013. The left hip is bothering me now. I have been on a walker since March 2013. I had to have cancer surgery in April and had to wait to have the first surgery in June.
It is now the end of September and I am still having pain in both hips. The core depression has not led to the desired effect. I almost wish they would do hip replacements rather than have me live on hydrocodone, muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatories, most of which I am allergic to (Mobic, Relafan, Neurontin). I can't sleep well at night due to trying to get in a good position, have to have the walker at all times, and ride the electric buggies in stores, if they are charged. I hate living like this.
