It is my understanding that core decompression can only be done in the early stages of AVN. So it means they caught yours early which is good. I do think the core decompression requires non-weight bearing for 6 weeks or longer after the procedure - therefore a stint on crutches. I am not a candidate for core decompression so my knowledge is limited to some reading on the subject. Let us know what the surgeon says!
