I assume "row" means "leg" or "limb". I don't think this is a Stata issue, as Stata's behaviour appears correct given the data and what you ask of it. Please explain why you think your by-hand analysis is correct. I don't think you can collapse the table in this way. A test of that is that if you reverse the table you cannot recover even a subset of the data correctly, as you do not have complete data on 6 limbs. Rather, you have complete data on 5 limbs only, as Stata is telling you.
