My almost two year old son is about to undergo his 2nd hip surgery (with another 3 months of spica cast, ugh) due to right hip joint being more square than rounded, soothe hip joint pops out. We declined genetic testing since he is only child and adopted, but doctor at Scottish Rite said he has seen such hip issues with PRS kids. So, maybe femur issue is tied to the PRS.
Good luck and please keep us posted on your son's progress!

: My daughter is 5; she was diagnosed with
: Pierre Robin Sequence. She has a trach since
: she was 3 months old as she also had lower
: airway malacia- that seems to have gone away
: 2 years ago. Her tongue size and jaw
: position combine to cause severe sleep
: apnea, so she still has a trach, which is
: capped when she is awake. We opted not to
: have mandibular extraction. We learned last
: year that our daughter might have the bone
: disease called fibrous dysplasia - is this
: what your son has? If so, what have you
: learned - our daughter is undergoing more
: testing to determine the extent - the
: diagnosis was based on a CT of her head.
: Wishing you well.
