My son used to complain about having a sore leg normally at bed time which we put down to growing pains it wasn't until he developed a limp that we took him straight to the doctor who sent him to the hospital for x-rays.
He had x-rays and blood samples taken which all came back normal, we ended up with an arrogant doctor who said he must have hurt his leg some how and now he was limping from habit but to bring him back in a month for more x-rays, those never showed up anything either and we were sent home again.
A few weeks later he was still complaining of a sore leg so we went back to the hospital again they tried to fob us off put we persisted so he was sent for another x-ray, when we got back to the room there was 2 doctors in the room and I am happy to say the 2nd doctor noticed a problem with his hip movements right away and referred him to the children's hospital.
He was given an x-ray at Yorkhill which showed a difference in the hip joint and we were told he will need a shelf procedure and explained briefly what is involved.
We have searched the Internet trying to find out information on the operation but all we seem to find is medical jargon so any information on this Shelf procedure would be much appreciated.
