My avascular necrosis surgery

I suffered from a hip pain for six years
I use to limp when walking and it became a problem for me. It got to a time I couldn’t walk with anyone because they gave me a name “SLOW WALKER”. I use to always cry in my room and swallow my sadness. I always act tough in the mist of people and cry behind closed doors.
Then at a point, my back use to hurt a lot I couldn’t do anything
People around always suggest herbal treatments but I was against it. At that point, I didn’t know what was wrong with me until I met a surgeon who explained everything to me and educated me about avascular necrosis (avn) . I got to know it’s also a crisis in sickle cell and I was to have a surgery.

Thankful, I had my surgery two years ago and it was a success 🙏🏾 I’m well now and I’m thankful
