Customer Question

I have been told I have elastic hips. Since my right hip was dislocated for the second time for 8 year before realisation by a surgeon. My right leg ended up to 4cm longer than my left. Since the replacement of femoral head into socket. My knees started dislocating. Then it dislocated again 9 years ago the repeated knee dislocation has practically gone away. The orthopaedics are having a problem telling the truth. The socket has been deformed and I have 5cm shortening in the right leg. I am having a problem explaining that due to the stretch that it is practically impossible to tell the difference of my body from lying on a table for an x-ray where a radiologist lines you up to walking around as long as I can stay on my feet. I would like to know what was stretched so I can make them understand as I can't find information to prove what links the hip and knee.
