Littlerosie - I saw Mr Andrew Lyons at London Bridge Hospital.He has a keen interest in ORN. The fracture was diagnosed by X ray, I had had an X ray a week earlier here but the surgeon missed the fracture!
Getting on fine with pentoxifline, no side effects, it is not proven to work but it has stabilized the ORN in some patients who have taken it.
As you say Hela there is no standard procedure, ORN is unpredictable. At the moment I am not in much pain. I get cramp like spasms in my jaw which are painful at the time but it passes.
