 I wanted to come to you and offer support and ask for support.  I was born with cleft lip/palate.  I still have yet to complete surgeries.  They repaired my lip at 6 months but everything else was put off until I was 18 due to financial reasons.  They have done the first surgery on the palate, it is mostly closed now, but the day i went in for the rhinoplasty i found out i was pregnant.  I am hoping to get everything started up again soon.

thank you.

Welcome to the group.  My son  Michael is almost 12 and was born with a unilateral cleft lip and palate.  He has had 6 surgeries so far and right now we are working on his orthodontics.  How many more surgeries are they saying you are going to need?  This is a great group with lots of support.

I know orginally they were saying six surgeries.  Who knows now.  I had braces on for about two years, one of which was in a part with the expander, and then retainer for about a year.
