hi,thanks for query.Over all fetal development is to be seen.If the growth and weight of the baby is fine and your doctor is satisfied with progress then there is no hurry to take out the baby.If your doctor suggests so then surgery is the only safe option which can prevent further damage to the baby.Please discuss this with your doctor and take a decision,you may involve a neonatologist also.
Wishing her all the best.
