Only I have not understood how healing is very dangerous, because my ankle is difficult to eat, can you please help me explain how the recovery process can be recovered quickly because of pity her activities are disturbed by her child complaining about stomach problems.

Good evening, thanks for the question
Pyloric stenosis is a rare condition wherein there is an obstacle in the form of narrowing of the gastrointestinal tract from the stomach to the small intestine. Normally a muscular valve (pylorus) between the stomach and small intestine is in charge of holding food in the stomach before it is passed into the small intestine for further digestion. In pilosis stenosis the muscle layer thickens so that the food channels will narrow and block the flow of food into the small intestine. Symptoms of pyloric stenosis include strong vomiting, dehydration, or weight loss. Children will also appear to be constantly hungry.
To deal with this condition requires surgery. The surgical procedure aims to remove the thickened muscle layer so that the obstacle can be overcome. Postoperatively, this condition is generally not relapsed and leaves no sequelae.
If there are currently other medical conditions accompanying it due to difficulty in intake of food, such as dehydration or electrolyte disturbances or severe abdominal pain, the doctor needs to overcome the problem first. When the child's condition is more stable, surgery can be planned.
Carry out further consultations with a pediatrician for a physical examination and subsequent treatment plans according to the current condition of your child.
That's all, hope you can help.
