So our DS who just turned ten has been reporting leg pain off and on for about 2 years, usually following intense activity (football track skateboarding alot) and usually at night. He is about 5-3, grew alot lately, so we attributed to growing pains. We have noticed this pain increasing quite a bit lately ( to the point of hysterically crying at night). Ibuprofen (nurses phone advice) doesnt seem to help. Anywhoo, DH and DS were sitting on the couch horsing around and DH was tickling him to see if he was "girl crazy". All of a sudden he yells for me to come check on DS leg! I felt what he felt and it felt like a bone on the inside of his mid-thigh poking out! So Im freaking out..called peds office and today was the soonest they could get him in. DR. starts poking and prodding his leg, bending, stretching, asking about falls accidents, then he tries to casually ask about bone abnormalities and the cancer history of our family. I think I just about passed out.... Sends us directly to the xray place for xrays. He calls us and says that what showed up was something that looks like an extra bone going from the knee joint to mid thigh. He will contact the specialists in Omaha at Childrens and call us back right away in AM. Since its causing pain it has to come out. No mention of what is causing it or anything. I am freaking out! I sit here and brace myself for worst case scenarios while trying to be positive, I tried searching on BING but cant find a single reference for a double femur bone anywhere and when I type in symptoms I keep getting pages for bone cancer! Ugggh! Sorry to vent its just been another rough day at our house. Makes me wonder what else could go wrong medically! Thanks all!
