As some of you may already know I have AVN of my left knee, So I got an MRI of my right knee this time and yup you guessed it, I have it there also. I was the one that insisted on the MRI because at one time I was experiencing the same pain in both legs.
Although I've suspected it for months now and can't say the news suprised me it still bothered me because deep down I was hoping he would say that I didn't have it.
I'm really scared of all this, I don't know what to expect, my Dr wants to see me tuesday of next week. Lets see what he'll say about all this

So sorry to hear that. I don't know what AVN is. I have lots of knee pain-I can only imagine what you must be going through.

Take care and take it easy.

Thnaks Nona!
@ Wendy, AVN is basically bone death due to lack of blood flow, which eventually causes the knee to collapse. In my case because I have a blood clotting dissorder they don't want to give me surgery to replace the knee as it would put my life at risk. I'm petrified of having to end up in a wheelchair one day. I do however give thanks to God because I am alive and I know that unfortunately there are folks out there who are worse off than me.
