Hi My friend has a daughter who is 10 years old with CP. She has significant delays. She was just potty trained this year, is almost non communicative, with the occassional grunt sounds to express what she wants and an occassional sign language sign. She walks with the assistance of a walker and braces on her legs. A few months ago she fell and dislocated her hip. She was seen by ortho and they basically put it back in and sent her on her way. So it keeps popping out and they have taken her to several orthos and different specialists who are saying that because she has CP, there is no point in doing a replacement. The only option was basically to keep her on pain meds the rest of her life and let her "deal" with the pain of that. She had an eval thru Shriners hospital and they basically said they couldn't help her. Has anyone encountered this before? Does anyone have any recommendations as to where I can tell them to contact for help. They are very discouraged and don't have the funds to do things out of insurance, which is state insurance. Any help I can pass onto them would be great. TIA.
