    Default Anyone get Avascular ostencrosis from steroids??

    I started getting really bad pain in my knees a few weeks ago and talked to my rhumatologist about it and she said that steroids can give you AVS. I got an MRI done last week and it showed this was starting in my knees. I have to go see the ortho next week now. Anyone have this happen to them and if so what was your prognosis??? I really dont want to get surgery, yet I can't keep on with this pain. I am not tappering off steroids!!!

    I'm sorry that no one has responded to your post. I have no experience with your question at all. However, if you'd like me to do some research, I will be happy to do so. Let me know :lol:
