Osteochondritis Dissecans

I know that many of you have replied in the past about OCD.  We are hoping for information, encouragement and answers to our 14 year old son's OCD.  It presented itself in the trochlea as opposed to the Capitellum like many others.  Has anyone else had OCD in the trochlea????

When he first experienced pain (we took x-rays and an MRI) he was not diagnosed with OCD.  We took a conservative approach anyway by resting for 3 months, PT and then a slow throwing program to get him back on track.  Unfortunately once he went back to 90 ft in throwing - his pain returned.  It was only after the second MRI and second opinion that he was diagnosed with OCD.  So we are back on complete rest.

We are obviously worried that rest isn't going to be enough.  We are looking for experts in the field and are willing to travel for the best?   I am also curious if anyone took extra calcium vitamins, acupuncture, or anything else that was helpful?

MUCH thanks for your insight and experience!!
