Hello All,

On Tuesday my wife, Sonia, and I discovered that our 9 year old had Perthes. Like many we had never heard of this before, but after almost 2 months of not knowing what was wrong with our little boy (Connor) it is a relief to finally have a diagnosis.

It has been really helpful reading some of the threads on this forum, seeing the issues others have had, and what we potentially have to look forward too.

Connor is bearing up well, and although walking is causing some problems he is getting around OK. Luckily we already have a wheelchair for him, as we had a couple of holidays coming up that involve quite quite a bit of walking and thought it would be a good idea. A pair of crutches for school should arrive today. This is as much to let the other kids to be careful around him as it is to help him get around.

Compared to the experiences of others with schools we have been really fortunate, and they could not have been more accomodating and helpful.

Anthony & Sonia

Hello,

It's been a while but I have an update and a message of hope for everyone that has a child with Perthes. Connor is now a long way along the path to recovery and is leading a normal life pretty much unaffected by his Perthes. We religiously followed the daily stretching exercises we were given and soon as he was given the all clear we enroled him in a Tae Kwon Do class to help with his flexibility. This has helped enormously and in November he will be going for his black belt.
