My 4 year old has been having pain in his leg for almost a year. Last year he was complaining in the middle of the night over a period of a couple of months until one morning he couldn't walk. He was x-rayed and found to have fluid on his hip. The possibility of perthes was discussed and we were told to come back at a later date. A few weeks later he got more pain and we went back to the hospital to be told he was ok. He was fine then for about 2 months and I thought that it was all behind us but then a few weeks ago it's all started again. His pain isn't as bad so far as it was before - He's not screaming for hours. We're waiting on an appointment for a x-ray and bloods. Is this going on too long to be Perthes? Would he be unable to walk by now? :? Any advice would be much appreciated, I just don't know anything about this.
