My 5 year old daughter has developed a leg that is smaller (thinner) than the other and possibly just a little shorter (1 mm), not sure about that. They have diagnosed her with hemihypertrophy (one leg larger). I am wondering instead if it could be related to the cardiac cath she had as a baby. (She had heart problems as well) They said they had a hard time getting in her left leg (the one that is now smaller) with the catheter. I am wondering if the vein was damaged from the cath and that is what is causing the leg to grow smaller.
Any advice would be helpful.
