"My daughter that had clicky hips."

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

My main problem of the hospital and my Gp is that my child has had her operation for her hips. The problem now and before the operation she gets such bad cramp and her legs lock so bad she is screaming so loud my next door harbour can hear her. Her legs lock so bad I can't bend them . They tell me to give her calpol or let her cry! I have not had a child that had had a normal life let allowing juggling college, child care that can support her! With her not being able to sleep at all at night. I have ask for answer but they say she fine cramp never happens in a child at such a young age? So what is it I have shown pictures video every thing I'm not happy!
