Hi there!

Well, without a detailed description of the symptoms/ relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. Assuming this to be a case of muscular dystrophy, the expected prognosis may depend on the type, severity of involvement etc. It would be best to discuss the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with her treating neurologist.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
