FVFG on LH: Avascular Necrosis of the Hip

With osteonecrosis (also called avascular necrosis) being so much in the news because of the link between Fosamax and jaw osteonecrosis and Floyd Landis having osteonecrosis of the hip, I thought I'd direct anyone who's interested in the subject to a blog in the Health Diaries archives called FVFG on LH. (those acronyms stand for "Free Vascular Fibula Graft on Left Hip") Star wrote a lot about her hip surgeries and the challenges that someone dealing with avascular necrosis of the hip has to live with.
