Hello, I was recently diagnosed with AVN, and have opted for the core decompresson surgery. I'm scheduled to have this done in a week and a half. I've tried to research this proceedure on the internet and have found very little information. Can anyone tell me about their recovery experience after this proceedure? On several websites, I've seen that it's protocol to be off your feet for at least 6 weeks. My doctor said it's a simple proceedure and I'll be on crutches only for a few days. I'm so confused. Who do I believe??? I don't want to get back on my feet too quickly and cause further injury, but at the same time I don't want to stay on crutches if it's not necessary. I can't seem to get any detailed information on the topic. I would love to hear what other people have been told by their doctors. I feel like I'm totatally in the dark here. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you...I'm running out of time.
