    Take care of yourself and the leukemia first. I struggled with AVN in both knees for years before getting them replaced. Overall health comes first. In the meantime, keep your hopes and spirits up as much as you can. It’s not an easy task, I know. But hope is sometimes the only thing we AVN patients have. I’m so sorry you’re going through this and I’m sorry I don’t have more to offer. Stay strong, I am in your corner and rooting for you all the way.

    I would def talk to your hematologist and whoever you’re seeing for your knees. They need to consult each other and your folks. Having this at 45 sucks let alone 15. Will be praying for you and your family. Hang in there 🤗
