I just wanted to ask someone who may have more experience with SCFE.
My son an avid sports player, started complaining of groin pain last summer, we thought it was a strain so didn't worry too much. This has continued and in November he went to GP and got a referral. The pain is on exertion, kicking the ball, climbing stairs etc. He says its like a stabbing pain, its now in his left hip as well, he points to deep inside where I think the femur is located.
4 xrays have come up clear and he is on 8 weeks rest from now, the consultant said they cant completely exclude Sufe as it could be in early stages. He wants to see if the pain stops with rest (ie repetitive injury)
My question is if it was a preslip how long can it go on for before it actually starts slipping and would it have not progressed even a little by now if it started last summer?
Keep worrying about this as he is so unhappy missing sports and everything is so vague. He has less movement in his right hip than his left but again we are told this could be normal for him.
Very grateful for any experiences or advice.
