findings are suggestive of magacolon suspected of early manifestation of hirschprung disease.

My son was premature baby. At 34 weeks pregnancy. His birth weight is 2 kg. now he is 5.5 kg in his 4 month old. First 3 month weight increased 1 kg per month. Now his growth become slow. Last 1 week he refused to eat. Become weak day by day. After birth 2 month he has huge gas problem. Now gas problem sloved. He does not vomiting first 3 month last 2 weeks he start vomiting sometimes. His belly is swollen first 2 month now his belly is not swollen. We use suppository. He has taken milk of magnesia for 2 month. After eating milk of magnesia he poop by himself after 2 or 3days. Sometimes his poop is normal sometimes hard after eating milk of magnesia.

Is his symptoms suspect HD?

If surgery is must how much time will take to recover him? What is the future of HD patient?

I really think it sounds like the doctors are doing a good and careful job.  Please try not to be afraid, and try to be guided by their counsel.
