Re: Pyloric Stenosis in Adults
I am one of the unusaul ones to have had Pyloric Stenosis also. Usually they say that it is the first born son that has Pyloric Stenosis. My brother was the 3rd born son he had it, Also was very sick with the chicken pox. It took the doctors awhile to tell my parents that he had Pyloric Stenosis. I was born two years later. I started with the same signs my brother had. I was dignosed with Pyloric Stenosis before I had lost much weight. Why am I one of the unusaul ones to get it.. Two reason. I am a female.. which is very rare. and 2nd not to many families will see two in on family. Because I wasn't as sick as most babies who are dignosed late, I was a very strong baby. I was put into a baby straight jacket. I broke out 2 or 3 times according to my mom. I am trying to find out if others have experinced some of the same problems I have. When I was 8 I was very constipated that when I was finally able to go I had a golf size ball, that was under my scar. Since then I have had times when I move in a certin way it will also cause it to appear. They have done CAT scans to see why I get this budge, but still at the age of 42 I have no answers. I am schedule to have a Colonoscopy done at the end of Nov. They are know saying they think their maybe problems in my intestines. I am not sure if this has anything to do with my pyloric stenosis or not. I just know that my brother has never had these problems. But then again could it be because I broke out of the straight jacket and caused some damage to the doctors did to repare my overgrown muscle.
