    necrosis means in short the bones supply of natural nutrients and in essence has died, best thing that can happen is it gets cut, i know of no other options, i would seek a second oppinion from a second ortho. i f i am not mistaken i know you play at the top level of your sport, i am sure the dr you saw was top notch, but a second oppinion cant hurt. i myself do not know any alternative treatments for this

    Thanks for the response,yea the doc was def. top notch,and you are right about getting a second opinion. After staying up all night reasearching this topic, there is not much more I can do but get it cut out like you said. It sucks cause I have never had surgery, but I Am going to take this as a positive, and I know it will make me stronger, especially mentally..
