Hi, I Have A 3 Year Old Boy With Pyloric Stenosis, Doctors In Mexico
Doesn't Really Know The Cause Nether The Cure, They Say He Might Be Allergic To Something, He Is Not Eating Anything Because The Pylorus Is Completely Closed, I Don't Know What To Do, They Say We Have To Wait Until It Opens, What Could Be The Cause? They Say It's Not For Operation Because The Muscle Is Ok, How Can It Get Opened?please Help, Thanks

  • Thanks for your response but the articles you sent me are for babies, the problem is that my boy has 3 years old and pyloric stenosis is very very strange in children this age, the treatment is totally different from a baby. I haven't found any information for this disease in children about this age.

  • Google "Pyloric hypertrophy in the adult". Lots of information available. Perhaps you will find something there of help or it will lead you to other helpful sites.Here is a site from the Turkish Journal of Gastroenterology:http://www.turkgastro.org/text.php?id=449
