Hi, my name is drema and i am 22 years old.   i have a 2 year old little girl named danika she is my life, back in october a month before she turned 2 all the sudden one day she woke up and couldnt walk.. just kept falling to the floor.. i was terrified so i took her to the ER, once there they did xrays and all that and found a cyst/tumor. a few days later she started having really bad pains and the specialist i was referred to told me i was a young mother and i was just OVER REACTING! and sent me home.. so i took her back to the er and they called the specialist and i was blown off by the er as well at this point. 5 hours after leaving the er, my daughter was playing and her leg gave out. she screamed the most horrible scream i've ever heard. i called her specialist and said i think she broke her leg!! he said u had her at the er today if u take her back i will tell them to send u home you are young and dont know what your talking about.. this was at 5pm.. the next morning at 10am after listening to her scream ALL NIGHT. i finally said screw this and took her to the er.. IT WAS BROKEN. and they put her in a full body cast but didnt remove the cyst / tumor.. a month after the cast came off she still couldnt walk. so finally i changed to a different specialist.. who told me that everything the first specialist did was wrong and on the 14th of this month they did a surgery and removed it.. the only issue with it all is, its right on her hip bone where her hip and femur bone connect which is really rare, and now there saying that the csyt / tumor that it is, is also VERY rare. they have only seen one case in 15 years... its gonna take up to a month to know if its cancer so lets wish for the best. sry just had to vent.. any opionons.. ill update when i know more.. as of now she is in a body brace instead of a cast so i can take it off as needed so thats one good thing. but she has an appointment on tuesday to tell me what they feel about how she is doing. because there is a chance she might never walk again.

We will keep you in our prayers.  I can't even imagine what you are going through.  When are doctors going to realize that we know our kids?  Textbooks do not have all the answers.!!!

All I can say is YOU GO GIRL!!!!! You did not let that numbskull of a doctor keep you from getting the help your daughter needed.  Thank you so much for posting this b/c it just confirms how we have to be in control of our own and our kids health, and not rely solely on doctors.  I will def. keep you and your little trooper in my prayers.  I cannot believe your age was even a factor in your daughter getting proper treatment.   If I were you I would file a complaint against that doctor.  No parent should have to go through that.
