mom's of boys that have had testical problems when an infant
My son just had his two month doctors appointment this morning. When he was born, one of his testicles had not dropped and the doctor said most of the time it could take up to two months to drop. Well, it hasn't dropped yet. The doctor checked him out and said it could have possibly gotten twisted when I was pregnant with him. My husband did not go with me, he had to go to work this morning, so I was by myself. When I told my husband, he said it sounded like it could be a hernia. The doctor said to come back in two months and if it hasn't dropped by then, we will have to go to a hospital in Pittsburgh to get it fixed. If it is a hernia, should it be looked at sooner? Wouldn't it be hurting him? We took him to the doctor 3 weeks ago and told them that my son cries and is cranky for hours on end and there's nothing else left for us to do anything and they determined he was colicky, but now I'm thinking this may be the reason. Because when he cries or is cranky, it's not like what other people have described there kid's being colicky. I know not all kids are the same, but could this be why he's upset a lot of the time? Should I get a second opinion?
Also, if any mom's son's have had a hernia like this, was he able to play contact sports later in life? The doctor told me he might not be able to play any and that makes me so sad for him. Thanks for any advice.
