Is it possible for a child who is born with this kind of hernia to actually survive if the condition is not diagnosed immediately after birth?
It seems like this is one of those situations where everything may appear normal from the outside, but are not going so well on the inside. It would be good to know what kind of signs indicate to a doctor that a child could be suffering from this sort of thing.
I don’t know, but I would imagine, that it would be just as hard to live with as it is for an adult to live with regular hernia symptoms; probably quite painful and uncomfortable.
Poor babies; I feel so badly for them! Here’s hoping that they didn’t feel anything bad in utero.
