keep your faith, I to had dislocation at birth. No one will ever know what you go through untill you have walked in their shoes. I had 3 total hip joints on my left hip and the right is still dislocated but I have cyst around the femur head that helps protect it but I still live with leg and back pain and walk with a cane. Has the dr offered a hip replacement to you yet to provide and restore your full range of motion yet? let me know how things are going. It was hard to find others who have been through what we have. I still get looks from limping and even after the new hip I still can not run and I have a 7 year old. It really hurts not being able to do what so many take for granite. I am only 37 years old .
