Operation Chloe: Part 2

 

I need hip surgery.

My hip has been dislocating for a while now. Sometimes my hips hurt, sometimes it did not. Although I do not have good sensation in my hips.

My family drives to Boston Children's hospital a couple times a year to make sure I get the best care I can get. I’ve met some brilliant doctors, nurses and surgeons.

You can see in the picture that my left leg appears shorter than my right leg. My leg lengths were actually equal but my leg was so dislocated that it it looked short (see the sample xray of a dislocated hip). This caused pain and made it harder to walk.
