Hi everyone, for the last few weeks I've been having terrible hip pain on my right hip. It hurts really bad when I stand after I've been sitting for a while. For those of you that don't know me I already have avascular necrosis on both knees and Im really scared that that's what I'm getting on my hip as I know it's more common on the hip than on the knee. I have an appointment to my orthopedic tomorrow, hopefully its not AVN of the hip.
I've also heard the term bursitis (sp?) can anyone with hip issues chime in. Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated, I'd like to steer my mind as far away from AVN as possible.
