we just got back from the dr's this morning and we just found out that Alex(2 1/2 years) needs to have another surgery. We are not susprised at all, I knew he would eventually need it, and I am glad that he is having it earlier rather than later, but until this morning there was alway hope that he wouldn't need it. Oh well just venting

I totally thought I replied to this earlier, wtf! I hate flood control.

I'm sorry Alex has to have surgery! That must be really scary, even if it was expected. What's the surgery for, if you don't mind me asking? And when's he going to have it?

He has undecended(I know that is spelled wrong) testicles from the Kallmans. The surgery is scheduled for Sept. 5th.

Hi there,
Just a little encouragement - my oldest son (non-ichthyosis) had the same surgery when he was about 2 1/2 yrs. (he's 12 now and that seems soooo long ago!)
Anyway, as far as the actual surgery portion and recovery of that it went fine. I was terrified of course and worried about healing process afterward but it went much smoother than I ever anticipated. Good luck! Susan

thanks,

He had surgery in that area when he was about 9 months old and at that time the dr. told us we would probably need this done eventually.

Thanks for the support.

I will keep everyone updated.
