my son was 4.5 years old when he started with perthes disease, i was told because he was young he would have a 100% recovery rate within 3 yrs, he is 9 in july. we are on our 3rd specialist 2 of which were fantstic. our 3rd specialist after returning due to pain getting servere told us surgery is looking possible in which they would break his leg and reset it. weve been seeing him for a yr now and in this time we have had no consistency of what is going to happen, he is having the operation, hes not having the operation, he can do impact, he should not be doing impact, we are really going round in circles, my son has never had to stop any of the activities he does to help with his perthes, 1 hrs swimming a wk, gymnastics for stretching, karate with no impact and riding his bike all agreed with specialist this was good for him. he is now struggling, iv been back to my gp as we are not happy and dont know if we are coming or going and is it really good for him to be on ibuprofen and paracetamol this length of time.
