Multi-jointed AVN/Osteomyelitis : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I have bilateral malleous, not talus related AVN,post CD 6 months, bilateral tibial plateau AVN, Lumbar AVN/Osteomyelitis post surgical X2 years now. Nice combination. Anyway, I was wondering if Core Decompression will be effective for other sites. It's been a long road to healing initial CD site. My R hip is most likely the newest site per my MD's. I'm too young for surgical replacements. How quickly does AVN progress and what can be done to slow things down Is there anyone else in this world that has similiar situation?
