My 3 month old had an ultrasound and Upper GI done this morning. Radiologist said his pyloric muscle looks larger than normal on the ultrasound but on the Upper GI Xray, the barium was passing through just fine. He said he was going to study it some more, more closely later on today. It probably won't be until Monday when his DR calls with the results. What does it mean when the Pyloric muscle looks larger but everything passes though on x-ray? Will he most likely need surgery? I am a nervous wreck right now!!!!!!!Answer Question

Pyloric stenosis is a narrowing in a muscle between the stomach and the intestines. It occurs in infants and more in boys than in girls. PS causes babies to vomit and not fully process and digest food. If a baby is not gaining weight, surgery is sometimes indicated to open the narrowed area. This allows food and nutrients to be digested and processed properly and the baby to gain weight-
