My son limped for almost 3 weeks following a virus. When his limped didn’t stop I took him to the Er. They ambulanced us to a Children’s hospital while we sat for hours being told that it was Skiffy and toxic synoptic. Then finally Perthes after another round of X-rays in the same day which by then was the middle of the night and the ortho looking at X-rays through the computer system. We followed up 2 weeks later and told to restrict all activity. Came back 6 months for new X-rays. Doctor (which is the first time we seen the doctor) said looks fine no Perthes resume all activity. ??😣😦. Ok so we go back to regular activity. Play little league football hesitatently. Fast forward almost 2 years later. Son is having several groin pain for weeks. We See two doctors concerned about testicular torsion. Ultrasound reads fine. We are waiting on a 2 month wait to see the urologist specialist with orders to go straight to ER if pain doesn’t let up. Then the pain goes from intermintent debiltating testicle pain to hip pain. Limping is off and on and my son is choosing not to be active because of pain (that isn’t his nature). Then when he is he almost won’t walk the next day from the pain. I call the ortho clinic who now wants a new referral says over the phone groin pain isnt linked to Perthes. The internet says it is??? Sooooo?? I’m so confused. I have 3 different appointments we are waiting on now. Pediatrician. Urologist. Ortho and then a 2nd opinion at the Shriners children hospital 6 hours away. All going to be 2 months out beside the pediatrician which will be Tuesday and hopefully I will be able to push them for a new X-ray.
