Default 8yr old girl with over 40 degree curves

Hi, I just found out my little 8yr old girl has a triple curve two of which are over 40 degree's she is being fitted for a brace, I'm just wondering why they wouldn't do surgery as I heard that over 40 degrees is usually operated on?
She also has Autism and is experiencing a lot of back pain with pins and needles in her legs. The last couple of days she has had a racing heart and feeling hot (possibly anxiety). All she had was an Xray, told she would need a brace and to come back in 6 months I am seeing her paediatrican in a few days and would appreciate any advice regarding these things. Thanks
