A dental nurse who reconstructed her hip when she was only 20 years old claims that her grandfather supports her through her recovery.
Ayla Winter-White, from Ascot in Berkshire, was diagnosed with developmental dysplasia of the hip in 2017 after years of her discomfort as & # 39; growing pain & # 39; to have rejected.
Mrs. Winter-White struggled to walk and went under the knife on July 23 to have her left hip reconstructed.
Her grandfather and & # 39; knight in shining armor & # 39 ;, only known as Keith, helped & # 39; while she recovers.
A cute video from Keith, 82, who painted his granddaughter's nails, even went viral and drew a million likes on Twitter and more than 207,000 retweets.

Speaking of her condition, Miss Winter-White said: & It is something that I was born with. When I was younger, I thought I had growing pains when I was growing up.
& # 39; Doctors finally diagnosed it in 2017 as congenital hip injury. I had to google it to find out what it was, it's pretty hard to find anything about it. & # 39;
Miss Winter-White claims that the painful condition made it difficult for her to walk or spend time with friends.
& # 39; It was difficult, & # 39; she said. & # 39; I couldn't go out much socially or really do anything. & # 39; (My hip) becomes very clicky. & # 39;
After learning how hip reconstruction could relieve her pain, Miss Winter-White was operated on last July. It is unclear what specific procedure she has had.
Hip reconstruction can describe a replacement – where the damaged joint surface is removed and replaced with an artificial implant – or reappears – when the femoral head is trimmed and covered with a smooth metal cover.
It can also be a hip osteotomy – when the damaged bone is cut, reshaped and fixed in a new position.
Regarding her operation, Mrs. Winter-White said: & It should make life a lot easier. It should be much easier. & # 39;
As she recovers, she trusts her grandfather to lend a hand.
& # 39; He has had two hip replacements, I think, so he knows what it is like, & # 39; said Mrs. Winter-White.
& # 39; He came by and he talked about it and gave me a cat litter so I could pick things up from the floor. He just really helped me. & # 39;
The & # 39; click & # 39; Miss Winter-White's hip made life & # 39; difficult & # 39; and influenced her ability to socialize

Last month, Miss Winter-White posted a video online of her grandfather lacquering her nails, with the caption & # 39; the love of my real life & # 39 ;.
In the video, Keith said: & # 39; I currently have an important task & # 39; before he asked his granddaughter: & # 39; How many coats are you wearing? & # 39;
Miss Winter-White claims that her grandfather & # 39; wanted her to feel better & # 39; and has been painting the nails of her grandmother Margaret for 30 years.
& # 39; He used to do it for my nan because she had arthiritis, & # 39; said Miss Winter-White. & # 39; I was so surprised when he did it for me, I didn't ask him or something.
& # 39; He really is my knight on the white horse. & # 39;
Keith has had two hip replacements and is therefore sympathetic to the pain of his granddaughter

Twitter users were touched by Keith's gesture, where someone found the & # 39; the cutest & # 39; called
WHAT IS HIP DEVELOPMENT DYSPLASION?
Hip developmental dysplasia (DDH) occurs when the ball joint does not form properly in babies and young children.
The hip joint connects the femur or femur with the pelvis. The upper thigh is spherical and sits in the cup-shaped hip cup.
In DDH, the hip cup is too shallow and the hip head is not held tightly in place. This makes the hip joint loose. In severe cases it can disrupt.
DDH can affect one or both hips. It is more common in the left hip, as well as in girls and first-born children.
One or two in every 1,000 babies have DDH that requires treatment.
This can be a fabric splint, called a Pavlik armor, which holds the hips in a stable position so that they can grow normally.
If this does not work or if the child is more than six months old at the time of diagnosis, surgery may be required to place the ball of the thigh in the hip cup.
Without treatment, DDH can cause patients to develop sagging, hip pain or osteoarthritis.
