Hi all,
My son who is 3 years old is suffering from vomiting, constipation and a persistent coughing, Our family doctor told me that these all are the symptoms of a hiatal hernia. But does it happen to toddlers? While browsing, I read that the chances of occurrence of a hiatal hernia are high for children with a larger Hiatal opening by birth. How can we detect this disease? Do I need to consult him with any specialist in a hernia for detailed check up? We are planning to get him treated from Shouldice hospital, Toronto but they are specialised in surgery, Is surgery a most for a hernia? Any suggestions would be appreciable. Thank you in advance
