    Sigh if it isn't one thing, it's another!!!
    DS has an inguinal hernia, going for a consult with a pediatric surgeon this afternoon.
    Sigh.

    Ok not actually a hernia but a Hydrocele. Surgeon said it is not an immediate concern but we should watch to make sure it doesn't suddenly change size. Going back in 6 weeks for a follow up. It is possible it could clear up on it's own but that hydroceles can basically become hernias and if it doesn't clear up on it's own in the next couple months that we should have it taken care of with surgery.
    It could be advisable to wait till after 5 months of age if there are no indications of it getting worse before then.
    Apparently they have change the guidelines about anesthesia it used to be not recommended till after 5 months but now they say 3 months but the surgeon would err on the side of caution if there are no major changes for the worse.

    Just an update, check out my signature for more links to more of the threads in the story......
    But DS is now 14 months old and doing great.
    We struggled through months of poor weight gain and problems with milk supply until I finally got my hands on a supply of domperidone around 5 months and breastfeeding and weight gain have been great since 6 months.
    I fully intend to continue on to extended breastfeeding, the early months were so tough, I need the reward.
