SCFE. effects later in life
Hi, I'm a 26 year old female. I was diagnosed with SCFE around 10 or so. Both hips were pinned, after I had a leg shortening procedure, as well as some other hip procedures I'm not sure of throughout my young adult life. Since I can remember I've had a bad limp and always leg pain in both sides even now in life. At 24 I had a hip replacement and at 25 diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and fibromyalgia. I was doing Remicaid Infusions, high doses of prednisone, methotrexate, percocet, among other anti-inflams. My rhemy didn't seem to believe me that I still was having bad leg pain...Does anyone know if SCFE can cause leg pain later on in life???

Hi there!

Though SCFE can be related to further degeneration and symptoms such as pain later in life, it is unlikely to be the cause after a hip replacement; while other issues such as causes related to the prosthesis, inflammation, degeneration, neuro-muscular causes etc may need to be considered. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
