I am 52 my Perthes was discovered at the age of 12, after a serious road accident when I broke my femur on the opposite side. No treatment ever, had some discomfort and pain over the years but recently my knee on the shorter leg is extreme and worsening by the day. My lower leg is starting to move outwards, this will I'd imagine eventually pull my knee joint apart.

Anyone else with similar, that can advise - cos it really hurts now, and worsening rapidly
