Can he perform stage 2 surgery or restore digestive tract through the anus again because the time after post op phase 1 is recommended The child weighs up to 10kg and the age of 2 can only be operated in stage 2 …
Hirschsprung is a disorder in which there is no innervation in the digestive tract part of the colong / large intestine. Hirschsprung is a congenital disorder, which is characterized by the inability to defecate after the baby is born, and can cause the stomach to appear enlarged.
If your child is going to have a second hirschsprung operation, and if the doctor recommends that your child weighs 10 kg, and if your child currently weighs 9.5 kg then it may be possible to do surgery with certain considerations. If the doctor feels the need to immediately perform surgery on your child, then the 9.5kg weight can still be operated on. Therefore, whether it can be operated on or not is determined based on the status or examination of your child first.
Therefore, it is recommended that you ask directly to a pediatric surgeon, so that the doctor can check the condition of your child directly first. that way the doctor can provide appropriate surgical advice.
