Pediatric fistula surgery


Mon, July 12, 2021 8:18 AM

I need help. A surgeon did a fistula surgery on my grandson who is under one year of age. The wound was left open and has not healed after months. He is in visible pain every time he has a bowel movement and cries! We need help finding a community and support. She doesn't know what to do anymore and feels helpless for her baby. He has another abscess to make things worse. Can anyone help us so we can find a solution to his pain and get the wound healed. She has sought out another surgeon. These doctors are leaving this child in pain day. There must be a pediatric community for this somewhere. She is at her breaking point. and need help.
