My name is Joanna Kindred i am 13 years old,I had SUFE diagnosed in march 2004 but my symptoms ,pain,limping started from an injury at school in April 2003. An x-ray in may 2003 was wrongley marked as normal but showed a slight slippage on the right hip.This slippage worsened over the months and still my local hospital said i had a torn hamstring and weak muscles and low pain intolerance!! Finally after going private and having a M.R.I scan i was sent urgentley to the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital in Middlesex with a 70 degree slip on the right hip and slight slip on the left. The next day i had a 3 hour op to insert pins in both my hips and realign my thigh bone, i was on crutches for 9 weeks that now has given me back ache. I am trying to get back to normal Finding that hard! I used to do a lot of dancing and gymnastics but that's been on hold for the last 10 months! I would really like to talk to anyone with Slipped upper femoral epiphysis, as it would help me alot. Hopefully this year will be better then the last. From Joanna Kindred Age 13, Eastwood
