i agree with Kel- push for the diagnosis.
and the hands on the floor test is only 1 of the tests of the beighton score . did they check the other 8? and apparently you only need to score 4 out of 9 to be considered hypermobile when the beighton score is used.
its best to see the specialists. my orthopedic consultant wanted to operate on my knee a little while ago, but then i was referred to prof pope who told me it wasnt my knee that was 'bad', it was my ankles rolling inwards when i stand up.....nothing wrong with my knee, apart from the dysplasia (which is 'normal' for my joints!
) i was lucky- if i wasnt referred to him i would probably have had my surgery by now...
and i prof pope also warned me that us bendy folk dont benefit too much from surgery, and quite often it makes things worse. he also said that we often take longer to recover. so id make sure that you consult someone who is famililar with hms so you know the surgery is gonna be helpful before she has it done!
hope this made sense- im sooo tired tonight that im probably typing nonsence! had a rather busy day at work!
