  3. Billy Graham CNN Comments (A Rebuttle)

I feel I must comment on something that Billy Graham said tonight on “Nancy Grace”.   He said that he has developed “avascular necrosis” which is death of a bone.  He said this happened due to prolonged steroid abuse.  

I myself have avascular necrosis of the lunate bone which is in the wrist, I cannot confirm that prolonged steroid abuse is a factor, but I can tell you that avascular necrosis can happen if that particular bone is fractured or broken and then heals incorrectly.  It can also be a hereditary condition.

With wrestlers taking hard bumps, it can also be possible that he could have fractured these particular bones while wrestling and not even realized it.   When the bone healed, it healed on top of where the blood supply entered the bone.
