Ganglion Cell Disorder
My son has fought with chronic constipation most of his life, due to his several developmental disabilities nothing was done to diagnoise the issue until he was 14. at that point they found that the ganglion cells do not all work right, but it is not hirshsprungs and he also needed part of the colon removed and a cecostomy was placed. now at almost 21 we are headed back for the colon to be removed. He sees the surgeon the end of July. at this point he has had the tube removed but then after the scare rupturing last fall (due to his entire digestive tract filling with air) and the cecostomy tube is no longer working well enough to release the air. what id like to know is is this going to also affect the small intestine?
