Sharp pain in hip on walking, xray. SUFE?

Resolved Question:


Im wondering if you have a doctor that can give a second opinion on hip problem in child of 13yrs. Investigated for possible SUFE, I have x-rays available and letter from consultant.  I don't feel confident with the current situation, as well as things I mentioned above he said when out walking with his friends he got a sharp stabbing pain and had to sit for a while until it passed.

Please also let me know if there is an extra cost, I have uploaded x-rays and letter

Kind regards

Thanks for your query at
I have read your query and gone through x-ray pictures.It looks from x rays that child should not have SCFE. SCFE is more common with children who are obese, having hypothyroidism or other endocrinology problems.
I am with opinion of your consultant that child should be on rest from excess physical activities.
Hope this will help you.

Hello Many thanks for your reply, maybe a silly question but can I ask what the purpose of rest is, if there is nothing sinister going on. I dont quite understand why they are making him rest with no diagnoses of anything wrong. My son is on the autism spectrum and is quite down not being able to play football Kindest regards

Hello Amanda,
It looks that your son may be suffering from tendonitis of muscles of anterior. In tendonitis, there is a need of rest for relief from inflammation and pain.
Hope this will help you.
With best wishes.
