 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My son does not feel the urge to pass stools. Thus, he doesn't realise when he needs to go to the bathroom. After the biopsy, the doctor suggested that we go in for a surgery. Now, my question is whether we should go in for rectal surgery or should we wait for some years? Some doctors say that this problem will improve as the child grows. We are totally confused. What should we do?

A: I think your child has a problem of aganglionic colon. Unfortunately, the biopsy is not conclusive. You may have to take some more biopsies. If the diagnosis is confirmed, then there is no other option but surgery. It is quite safe.
