    Hi @Debso12, welcome to the community!

    We don't appear to have had anybody mention this condition on the community so far, would you like to tell us some more about it?

    Hello @Debso12,

    Yes 10 years of taking steroids has trashed my skeleton. One of a multitude of side effects of treatment following a bone marrow transplant.

    I was due for a double hip replacement some years ago. I never went through with it as the life of an artificial joint is only around 15 years and following a dose reduction I actually recovered some bone. Although this is unheard of for hips apparently.

    The surgery will help for a while but unless the cause is stopped, deterioration of the surrounding bone will begin again.

    There doesn't seem to be anything that can be done to ease the pain. I find myself having to turn over many times during the night while in bed.

    @Debso12 hey hope your op went well I'm in the same boat as you.  Had two hip replacements a right partial shoulder and need two knees due to steroids for my Eczema.
