Gastroschisis at 21
My daughter had surgery at birth for gastroschisis in 1988. She was born 5 weeks prematurely and weighed 1.7 Kg She recovered reasonably well and was eating orally at 4 weeks. She has had infrequent problems when her bowel seems to penetrate the stomach wall and twist and she then goes into spasm. She has had some hospital admissions because of this without resolving the problem. These episodes have become more frequent recently and have taken longer to subside. I am concerned because on completion of her degree course at University she, like so many young people, would like to travel the world. I am worried that this would be foolish without sorting out the problem. I am also concerned what the future holds for her if and when she decides to have children. We are in the process of trying to get some advice but we would appreciate any suggestions you have and if you have a colleague in the UK who may have the experience we require of post operative surgery for young people following gastroschisis at birth that would be very helpful.
