What's New in AVN

has anyone taken blood thinners, speciafically lovonox for avascular necrosis or osteonecrosis? what was your experience any positive results?

I’ve been taking a full therapeutic dose by injection everyday for 7 months and do not feel it has made any difference but do not know how long to keep trying since my hemotologist said it’s up to me how long. the studies have been done for 30 -90 days until more recent studies have gone 3-6 months. it is supposed to stop the progression of the avn if it is in stages 1 or 2 and maybe help with symptoms of more advanced stages of disease but also depends on the underlying cause of the avn. if you have any experience with this I would love to hear about it.

💩💩💩 Trouble #ogilviesyndrome

I have multiple heath issues I have been dealing with for the last 5 years.

1. Avascular Necrosis #AVN
2. May-Thurner Syndrome
3. Trigeminal Neuralgia
4. Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis

And most recently, Ogilvie Syndrome. For the last 2 months I have had no urge to 💩💩. I've been to the ER 3 times and hospitalized once. When I was admitted I had only had 1 BM in 4 & 1/2 weeks. And that one time happened when I was in the ER and had a soap-suds enema. I had a CT scan which showed no obstruction. I do take pain medication for AVN so they gave me a shot of Relistor to see if it would release the affects of the pain meds. It did nothing. So, they diagnosed me with Ogilvie Syndrome. They started me on Linzess, first 145 MG then 290mg. Did not help. Then Trulance, then Motegrity then Relistor. Still nothing. Even taking Mirilax every day. The only times I've had a BM is when drinking 2 bottles of Mag-Citrate. I still have no urge to go. They are trying one last medication, Symproic.
If anyone who has Ogilvie Syndrome can let me know what worked for you I would greatly appreciate it. I'm getting so frustrated and scared that I may never have that urge again.
Thanks 💜
