New here and so very glad to finally find others w/ this issue! There is little out there and no support groups that I can find! My son is 19 yo post L hip fx age 12 that lead to AVN. He was Dx at that time w/JIO. After 4 surgeries (last on 1/2011 for impingment)now needs replacement.Was a freshman at college -walking just over a mile a day-c/o severe pain after 2 months and had to return home. Current dexa dispite po Fosamax is has dropped too low and told he needs a drug IV likeSomenta/Reclast. Are there any parnets out there who has the misfuture of their child Fx a major joint? Or recieve IV drugs for bone density?Unknown is how one will affect the other-seems to be a gray
area with surgeon and medibolic MD.Read the Somenta will decrease pain,something my son is not good at voicing but can tell he suffers from. He also has Aspergers Syndrome.
