Wordless Wednesday - Mystery Bone

Last Wednesday I was at the Orthopedic Specialist with Lil Kiwi and missed visiting everyones WW (frown)... I wrote about Lil Kiwi's visit to Dr. D and said that I would try to post pictures of the X-Rays... Well, this was the best I could do and it wasn't easy since I don't have a light board to use...
What you see is Lil Kiwi's X-Ray of her hips... There is what looks like an extra bone (with growth plate) from her left hip to groin area... Dr. D has never seen or heard of this and so we are waiting for a CT scan to find out more about the extra bone... Currently, Dr. D believes it could possibly be an extra Femur and that isn't good... Oh and I included the X-Ray of Lil Kiwi's small toe.. You can see that the Metatarsal of the fourth digit is much smaller...Hmm I guess this was a Mostly Wordless Wednesday...

  3. How strange. I would think the extra bone is nothing to worry about, but I am no doctor. I will keep Lil Kiwi in my thoughts. Hopefully it's no big deal. :o)

  11. It's always good when the specialists go '...what the...'

    Completely fascinating x-rays for WW, Brooke. Your daughter will probably be written up as a case study in the future.

  27. Hang in there! We went thru LOTS with our son, my advice would be to keep asking to see a better Dr. if you aren't comfortable. You will know in your gut if you have the right Dr.
    God Bless :)
