The niece of the niece healed after birth for a long time. When it came time to appear the surgeon, he made a disappointing diagnosis: umbilical hernia. Naturally, all relatives and friends immediately began to give sensible (and not very) advice.
Relatives immediately divided into three camps. Some claimed the niece an umbilical hernia screamed. Although the nephew is an unusually calm girl, unlike my youngest daughter, who, according to this statement, was supposed to have a dozen umbilical hernias, because she loved to shout about and without.
But much more was touched by those who claimed that the umbilical hernia in a child happened because in the maternity hospital the navel was badly bandaged! That is the fault lies entirely with the doctors. By the way, this was not claimed by a second aunt from a deaf village, but by a man with two higher educations.
All disputes stopped by the surgeon. He explained the problem simply: the weakness of the umbilical ring is heredity. This theory was believed much more than the rest.
One way or another, but our family medical consultation decided: urgently to treat! The question remains: how?
It turns out that the standard procedure for laying on the tummy is very effective in the fight against umbilical hernia. So the child’s abdominal muscles are strengthened, and the hernia itself does not bulge.
In addition, the niece prescribed a course of massage. True, she didn’t like this procedure very much, and from time to time she was outraged, but two courses before the half year were completed.
The doctor also recommended that the bulged out hernia be set and the navel adhesive tape be sealed.
Most often, if the hernia is small, it disappears by three years, which we very much hope for. But sometimes, in case the hernia has not disappeared, surgical intervention is required.
Just recently, the neighbor’s daughter suffered a similar operation. There was a lot of unrest, and they were preparing for it almost from the age of five (the operation was done at 7). But everything went well.
The girl stayed in the hospital for only three days. On the first day (the day of admission) she passed the necessary tests, on the second day she had an operation early in the morning, and in the evening of the third day after the examination, the attending physician was allowed to go home. Ligation was done in the clinic at the place of residence.
According to the neighbor, the operation is not terrible, the stomach after it practically does not hurt. The only negative – release from physical exertion for several months.
My sister has already decided that if all the procedures do not help, then after five years, namely from this age, operations are performed to remove the umbilical hernia, she will resort to surgical intervention to remove the umbilical hernia.
