Hi, I'm wondering if someone is in the same situation.
My daughter was diagnosed with severe DDH of both hips at 6 weeks old and instantly went into a pavlik harness, after 8 weeks they than put her into a dennis brown bar, she has been in this for 4 weeks now. We went to a check up last week and her hips only improved by 1 degree, so we have to go back in 6 weeks and get an x-ray and ultrasound. They are hoping that by then she will have "normal" hips, but they said if she doesnt we will have to keep it on for another 6 weeks and if they still arnt "normal" than we have to discuss doing something different.
I'm very confused on what else there is to do? The doctor said they will keep the brace on until they're fixed, so why did he say we will need to discuss doing something different? Is something different meaning surgery? I'm so very confused and worried that my daughter is going through all of this to only have to go through surgery and a cast!! Has anyone been through this or something similar?
