I’m 26 years old Sri Lankan. When I was born, my both hips were dislocated. Therefore my parents had taken me to an orthopedic specialist. Then my age was 8 months. The doctor had checked me & realized about my born defect. After that he operated my both hips. After the operation hips were correctly located. But hip heads & hip cavities are not normal shape. Doctor advised us it will be normal in future with growing. But it is not happened.
I can do my normal works with limitation. For an example it is little difficult to climb the steps rather than walking the flat surface. The reason is difficult to raise my legs to normal level.
If you are living in Sri Lanka with this type of condition, pls respond to this post. So we can share ideas to mitigate the problem.
