Hi I wonder if anyone can give me some ideas.
my daughter has hip dysplasia (bone isnt in the hip socket) she's having an operation to correct this on Tuesday and will be in a cast for 3 months.
I am really worried about this affecting her medical, can anyone help?
You would need to defer hers and possibly all your medicals till such time as she is able to take it fully fit.
Discuss this with your agent ASAP.
At what stage do you have your medicals, do you these need to be done before you lodge your EOI? very early days for us but were at the stage of getting everything together for my partners skills test.

However, they are, iirc only valid for a year (as are police checks) so you don't get them done too soon else you'll be taking them again maybe.

Don't blind side them with this later on when you've spent thousands. Many people have medical problems or conditions and get given a visa so don't panic overly. When its time for the medicals anything like an op being done would require some paperwork being shown to the panel doctor doing the medical so they can see what is what. If its an ongoing condition requiring more treatment then you'd need letters etc from the consultant and doctors and so on supporting your case.
But really, discuss with your agent asap.
Hi, I was born with the same condition in both legs, and have now had them both replaced. I had my medical notes and just told them and they were fine about it. My daughter has a spinal condition and it wasn't a problem either.
let me know how you get on.
All 3 off our daughters have the same condition and our eldest daughter was in a cast for approximately 8 weeks and the other two were in a brace, once we had the medical we were revered and our consultant had to write a statement to explain the condition. Once that was received in Sydney it was excepted. This was in 2011 so I cant see that this condition would cause you any major problems with your application.
omg this seems like a life time ago! FYI medical was absolutely fine, no issues at all!
