hi, my daughter is now 5 and has had a limp for almost 2 yrs now. eventually the doctors have listened to me and she was diagnosed with perthes disease in june09. we were told to help her with swimming and cycling and to restrict impact excersize. her limp seems to be getting much worse though she struggles with stairs and everyday walking and sitting now. i have kept ringing the hospital to get her another appointment as she is not meant to be seen until october and am still waiting to hear about this. i feel like she is living off calpol and ibuprofen and i just don't know what to do anymore. can anyone offer advice on how long this is going to go on and for how long she will be in pain for. thanks
