Any advice on spica casts?

Hi there.

I'm after advice on hip displasia really.
My DD is 12 weeks old and has been diagnosed with hip displasia. As she is too big / heavy for a Pavlic cast they have said to wait until she is 6 months old. She will then have an X-ray and they suggest it's most likely she will need an operation and then a spica cast for anywhere from 4-6 months.

I'm terrified :-(
