My daughter just went back to her plastic surgeon that did 2 of her 3 cleft palate surgeries. They mentioned about
doing a swallow test because sh'e had GERD along with food itself coming back up. Come to find out a majority of kids with cleft lip and/or cleft palate have this. I had to keep her sitting up for 45 minutes after she ate when she was a baby.
The speech therapist mentioned sometimes they have to do surgery to fix the sphincter at the bottom of the esophogus. Is that pretty much an outpatient surgery? She ha an endoscopy last year where they said there was damage to her esophogus and she was on Prevacid for six months.
Just wondering about any deyails you might have on this.
God bless you.
