Have you had a child with Pyloric Stenosis ? It is most common in little boys, from the age of 3 weeks to 5 months. My son just went through the hell of this condition. What happens is your child vomits everything that he eats. And its not just spit-up it is projectile vomiting. You will notice a decrease in wet and dirty diapers. With my son he didn't have a dirty diaper for 5 or 6 days. He ended up getting dehydrated. The only way to fix Pyloric Stenosis is surgery. As a mother I've gotta say that the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with in my entire life was to see my baby in the hospital with an IV in his head. I was so helpless there was nothing I could do for the poor guy. He got the surgery and is going great now. He is able to eat again and he is having plenty of wet and dirty diapers. So as scary as it all was, it was worth it. So if you do have to go through this situation Pyloric Stenosis is treatable and really there isn't anything to worry about. Chances are the surgeon will have donet the procedure before and everything is going to be ok.

I haven't seen anyone having the condition, but since I'm from the medical field, I can relate. It must had been difficult going through the situation. I can imagine all those medical procedures, the pain on the patient and the relatives directly taking care. Glad your son's ok. Cheers!
