I've had perthes when I was about 13 years. I underwent surgery (hip osteotomy, I think), and then after 5-6 months, I was able to walk again. I'm 23 now and am more or less fit, though I do suffer from occasional pain in my left hip. Fortunately, most of it is relieved by cycling.
I have been living in a tropical climate (temperature between 5 to 30 deg Celsius) and am about to move to a much colder climate (with a minimum temperature of about -20 deg Celsius). I was wondering if this would affect my hip and leg adversely.
If anyone knows about the [b:4795b42bef]effect of low temperatures/cold climate on perthes patients[/b:4795b42bef], please do reply. Any kind of feedback is more than welcome, especially from those who've lived in colder climates. Also, any precautions or tips regarding this would be welcome.
I am in a time crunch regarding my moving decision and prompt replies would be very gratefully appreciated. Thanks.
