I have a family member that has had severe bone problems for several years now. He broke his hand years ago and found out the bone never healed and died so he had the bone removed and replaced with metal rods only about a year ago. He broke his ankle in late 2006 and just found out that the bone didn't heal again. He had a bone scan and found out that both ankles are broken. The orthopedist said that he had extra fluid in his bone that shouldn't be there and said he had osteochondrosis. They are doing a biopsy in a few weeks but I wanted to find out as much as I can about his condition. He is 27 yrs old and has a young family. We are all really worried about him. Can anyone suggest where to find out more information while we are waiting for a diagnosis? Thank you for any help.
