My son was diagnosed with pyloric stenosis when he was about 3 weeks old. Before surgery, he was vomitting after every feeding, he could not keep food down at all. Now he is almost 11 weeks old, he no longer vomits, but he do spit up after every meal. The Pedi said it could be acid reflux or there could be a chance that the surgery wasn't 100% complete. I've been thickening his formula with rice cereal for the past couple days and it has helped a LOT! We go for an upper GI next week to make sure the surgery was successful, I was just wondering has anyone dealt the this? Has anyone's child had this surgery and it wasn't successful the first time? I'm thinking it's just reflux since the cereal has been helping a lot. But i'm still a worried mother who doesn't want he child to go through that again.
Also, the pedi told us to make formula as thick as pea soup...i have been and he holds it down fine, thank God. His bottles just look scary..
