  • I believe we are going through that right now with my 3 year old, although she hasnt been diagnosed yet. Our pediatrician has always dismissed our concerns, and so I am in the process of switching doctors for her right now. I'd love to talk to you to compare symptoms and whatnot. This has been going on since our daughter was born, and it doesnt get any easier.

  • I don't know if you're still checking answers to this post, but my son was born with Hirschsprungs. He was diagnosed right after birth, and had surgery when he was 8 days old.

    He's now 7 1/2 and doing great! The first year was rocky, but there haven't been too many long-term effects. He has some trouble with incontinence at night, but has had no problems during the day.
