My 17 year old son is in the maintenance phase of treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and was diagnosed with avascular necrosis about 7 months ago. Treatment for the AVN has included the holding of his prednisone and weekly Fosomax. The AVN has not improved and his tibia has become weaker. He is to limit walking and time on his feet. Does anyone have any other news on treatment for AVN? How limited should he be?
He is looking forward to going to college next fall. And in addition to the concern about AVN and if it will be improved, I also worry about college living. Have you had students in treatment with unstable AGC's staying in dorms or multi-roommate apartments?
