avascular necrosis means blood supply had reduced and caused bone death. arthritis due to it progresses as you age .think of replacement when it starts being painful with activity and you start restricting activities due to in short pain regularly and progressive is indication for you to go for replacement .
drugs prescribed are for maintaining bone strength and pain relief . they cannot prevent or postpone arthritis in AVN cases .
regular use of pain killers daily not too much recommended beyond six months
