Hi I was diagnosed with Perthes Disease when I was 8 I had a few weeks of traction when the pain was bad and a wheel chair and crutches if I was going out. After a good few years I was discharged from the hospital this means no more check ups but they said if I had pain I should come back. I am now 19 and over the past year I have noticed the pain coming back if I do some thing to irritate it. last week I got in touch with the doctors as the pain had got worse I am now worried that it may be arthritis setting in as I am only 19 this worries me. Has any body else been a Perthes Disease sufferer and developed pains so many years later pleas share experiences. :?
