I have Osteonecrosis in both hips (caused by Sickle Cell Disease).  I was diagnosed in 1996 and told to have a hip replacement. I waited because I was too young.  Now, I still haven't gotten the surgery.  I found alternative health options to improve the health of my bones and delay this surgery. (some people opt to just cut...I didn't) 

Look at my blog, I have a post about Avascular Necrosis...my story...hope it helps you and your husband.
