Osteonecrosis And The Death Of Bones | Illness and Health Blog | Wellescent.com Guest article

Of the resources necessary to sustain human life, oxygen is by far the most critical. Within minutes of the oxygen in our tissues being depleted, any oxygen-starved cells will begin to die. Because oxygen is delivered to our cells by the blood in our circulatory systems, the cause of oxygen starvation in our body tissues is usually a blockage of blood flow. The most readily recognized health problems caused by this severe lack of oxygen in our tissues are heart attacks and strokes.

  1. >Dear Anon,What is the pain like? I can only imagine that it's awful, with bone hitting bone. Is there medication you can take for this? What can you do about it?

  2. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I have truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  3. Very blog I must say. The things you say are generally right, but I do not agree on everything you asume.
    I will be back to see what else you have to say and what the reaction of other people on your blog will be. Keep up the good work.

    • I wish you would fill out the form which says “Contact Nurse Annie” at the top, submit and it will be sent to me: That way I can address your concerns or we can discuss them.

  4. I would like to subscribe to the blog and begin checking in to see if there are any solutions to my wife’s AVN-related difficulties. She has lupus and is now being worked up for possible surgery because one of her artificial shoulder joints is failing (the glenoid is being eaten away). She desperately needs alternatives. She’s only just turned 50, but had to retire as a nurse/pain management specialist because the steroids prescribed to her for lupus caused AVN in both hips and both shoulders.

    • Gary, on the right side of the blog, there is a FOLLOW THIS BLOG BY E-MAIL. If you complete the steps, whoever there is a new post or a new comment on a post, you’l; be notified by e-mail. I’m glad you cane around and I hope you can find some articles which address her conditions. AVN is one of the known results of lupus and sometimes called osteonecrosis. There are a few articles (post) on ON so look in either category for information, In the meantime, I’ll try to address other causes of osteonecrosis. annie

    • Gary, I’m a nurse and lupus is the reason I had to leave nursing, too. Last December, I had a shoulder replacement. The surgery was EASY, but rehab is LON. Still, surgery. More later.

    • Gary/Robin, Yesterday I heard of a gal having success with ‘Prolozone therapy.’ I know NOTHING about that therapy, but did want to ‘throw it out there’ as a potential treatment for AVN.

Let us all know how bright you are and share your thoughts!
