welcome to healthcaremagic
if it is avascular necrosis and decompression operatiopn to be done,it should be done as an emergency operation and that will give better result than waiting for operation on subsequent days leading to further deterioration of the condition
please consult your surgeon and get every thing explained about the condition and method of treatment with future prospect
