    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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
