    I have osteonecrosis or avascular necrosis(Bone death) is 6 joints (hips,shoulders,knees) I've replaced 1 hip and 1 shoulder so far,But I've noticed that the left hip that was replaced and the left shoulder that needs to be replaced has lost 99% of all hair, My leg looks clean shaven and parts of the arm look the same.I've also noticed that both extremities on the left side have a look similar to ground beef, It looks strange. I've had 2 different echo's to check blood flow and it was OK. I showed my Ortho and Pain doc and they have no idea.. I was just wondering if anybody has had anything like this. any help is appreciated Randy
