Autumn is 20 months old. We have just found out she has Bilateral Congenital Hip Dysplasia. Her left hip is partially dislocated & her right is completely dislocated. The feeling is overwhelming. As an infant learning to crawl she sometimes favored her right leg. Late to start walking (16 months) she also favored the right leg & even limped.
As first time parents we were concerned but every doctor visit they seem to think she was just a little behind schedule but perfectly fine. It wasn’t until other people started showing concern we made an appointment strictly to check her limping walk that we had assumed her way of learning her balance. Within 5 minutes her doctor felt there was an issue & recommended x-rays. 2 days later she was diagnosed & scheduled for surgery. We’ve not yet begun our journey, surgery is schedule for June. I will update as we move forward.
