My case of OSD and what the doctors say is quite odd.
I got it when I was 11 years old, knocking on peoples doors and running away from very pissed off people. One day, I was running and stopped myself from falling by sticking my right leg out. As a result, I sprained my knee, and after that I was diagnosed with OSD by some kind of bone specialist (ortheropaedian or something). I was told that I could continue running, since I used to and still do a lot of long distance running, but if there is any pain, I should stop. I was also told that the same thing could happen to my left leg.
I had to live with the pain at first, intense pain whilst playing football, kneeling on hard surfaces and so on, but about a year ago (now I'm 16), all this pain somehow went away. I know this is bad, but I even smash my knee against walls in my house and it feels quite fine, but I still have the humoungous lump and random pains.
3 years after I was diagnosed, I went back to my GP to ask for another X-ray. He went along with the plan, and when I returned HE SAID IT WAS DIAGNOSED AS A SLIGHT FRAGMENTATION!!! Then I went back 6 months later and he did not seem to have a clue so went along with the original OSD diagnosis.
Also, I seem to have this problem where my lower leg is a bit more outwards than my upper leg, so it seems as though my legs are bent. I was never like this until I was about 10ish. Can someone tell me what's wrong with my leg???
And one more thing. I speak on behalf of all us kids who enjoyed annoying the hell out of people by knocking on their doors and running off, sorry. I think I've been punished by god for this.
