So my 16 month old baby started crying every time I lifted her leg when changing her diaper. I thought it was because she had a pretty nasty fall a few days before so I took her to have x rays done today. I got news that I was not expecting :(( He is sending her to a Specialist this week.  Does anyone  have or heard of this before ?

Has she ever had hip problems before?  Or been in a pelvic cast? Do you have a copy of the x-rays? Did they show you? Is she completely missing the ball joint in the hip?

I've never known anyone with this personally but I have a friend whose son was in a pelvic cast for an extended period of time and this was one of the worries that we researched,  he never developed it.

I do have the x rays on disk and I seen them and he explained to me what was going on.  He was pretty urgent about seeing the specialist this week so that's always pretty worry some . She never displayed any symptoms that were noticeable to me til this weekend when she was crying because it hurt. I did ask if that's why it has taken her so long to walk and he said most likely :(  I can message you as I learn more.

Well good luck.  Just because he wants her seen by a specialist right away doesn't mean that it will turn out all bad.  They sent my daughter to am endocrinologist and made it seem like if I didn't get her in that week that she would never grow again.  The endocrinologist just took tests and set up an appointment for 6 months down the road.  So a rush doesn't always mean emergency,  sometimes they just have tests They need to do asap so they can compare them in a few months to see if there is any change.
