Chris, My son was diagnosed with SCFE (with servere AVN rt hip) at age 11. The left hip went 3 months later. Now at age 18 he is contomplating THR and is in alot of pain. He has been home school 1/2 of his senior year and parts of 3 other years. So I can completely understand your pain and that of your parents. Our lawyer told us that SCFE is hard for Radiologist to diagnose because it isn't seen often. We are also in Pittsburgh so if you want to respond my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org Good luck and our prayers are with you!!
