AVN in knee

greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I was just recently diagnosed with AVN in my right knee from being on high doses of steroids for UC. My doctors said that is very rare to have it in other joints also. It seems that this may not be true. I read that if you have it in the hip that usually it is in both hips. Is this true for knees. My left knee hurts, I am currently wearing a weight bearing brace on my right leg but the pain is getting worse.
