My son had his 3-month clinic appointment yesterday and they let me know his hip is (or was) dislocated. At his previous clinic appointment he had an x-ray to monitor any possible scoliosis. At that time, they noticed his hip was dislocated. I was not notified until yesterday. I was told that it is common w/DMD because the muscles are weak and don't help to keep the joint strong. They won't do surgery because of the risks associated, and the fact that he isn't walking (and doesn't seem to be complaining about it). The fact I wasn't notified is what upsets me the most. Looking back over the past few months, I've been getting up to turn him more at night (previously he didn't complain as much), which I think is more about his hip that general aches/pains. It would have been helpful to know it could have been his hip bothering him. It also would be good to have in mind when lifting him. Basically, the drs. advice to me was to put a pillow in between his legs at night to keep his leg neutral (straight). Has anyone else experienced this (hip displacement, in general)?
