I was 7yrs old in the 1950's when I was diagnosed with Perthes in my left hip. It took ages before they realised what I had because it was believed that girls just didn't get Perthes. I was in hospital for 6mths and in calipers for 18mths. I haven't been too bad but have what specialist calls 'a slight imbalance of the spine'. My back and hip ache quite a bit more as I'm getting older but no-one can tell me if I should take it a bit easier or make sure that I get lots of excercise. Anyone else had the same experience?
