Hi guys! My name’s Siobhan and I am 21 years old living with Hip Dysplasia and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Type 3, in Melbourne.
A lot of babies are found and are thus treated early with hip dysplasia, but unfortunately there isn’t a big support network out there for the adults. This is one of the reasons why I thought I would get online and share my story so that others can get an insight into my experiences with bilateral hip dysplasia.
I found reading blogs from other hippies when I was diagnosed helped me to understand my options, and what to expect. Another reason I’m doing this is so I don’t have to keep repeating my situation over and over to those around me… and also just to get the word out there for those who don’t know much, or anything at all about the condition.
