Hi there. I had Perthes at 11yrs old after coming out of my leg splints at 12yrs old my hip grew back flat and over time my leg has become 2" shorter. Ive led a very active life and had 3 children. The past 2 years have become very hard and painful. My hip is causing pain on a daily basis, even sitting down is a chore.
I was on the sick before my materity leave and I am due back in work next month but there is no way I could cope.
After a few moans to my gp over a year ago I saw a consultant & was going to go on the waiting list but found out I was pregnant. My baby is now 8mths & the pain is unbareable. I finally got an appointment to see a hip consultant again only to turn up & he was in a meeting. I saw his assistant who told me every horror story going to put me off going on the waiting list. She mentioned foot drop that id not heard of. She said im too young & I should put off going on the list. Ive told her no I want to go on the list. Any advice? Am I too young at 34?
