Hi everyone, Ash123 was apparently banned and doesn't know why, but she has a question for anyone who's baby has had the fundo procedure. She's afraid Josiah's surgery has come undone.
How often is a post-fundo baby expected to vomit and it still be considered "normal?"
My daughter has a fundo. She doesn't vomit however so i don't know how much help I'll be. She does still experience reflux - she gags and chokes if her rate is too high on the feeding pump. At it's worse she gags, etc. about 5-10 times a feed. She also has a gtube for all feedings.
Our GI doc said that sometimes a fundo does loosen up and allow vomiting but still prevent aspiration on the lungs. He didn't say how often. I have heard of some kiddos still vomiting regularly but the fundo is considerd intact.
Has she asked her GI doc about it? Perhaps they can do an upper GI and a test to see if the fundo is indeed intact. I would certainly ask about checking to be sure.
Good luck to her!
