At my daughter's 6 month well baby visit last week, the pediatrician said he was concerned about the way her legs didn't line up and sent her for an xray. Up until now, she's been seeing my doctor who is a naturopath and midwife and who always did the hip click exam but never mentioned anything. The xray showed that the head of the left femur is smaller than it should be. The pediatrician referred us to a pediatric orthopedist and we have an appointment next week.
In the mean time, I am freaking the eff out and terrified that she's going to need surgery and braces. I'd love to hear about anybody else's experience with this. What should I expect?
