FAQ - Hernia, Diaphragmatic
(Powered by Yahoo! Answers)

Do you know a baby that has been born with a diaphragmatic hernia?

Were they born C-section? Did they recover? Are they living a normal life and developing as they should?

My friend's daughter had one, she was born via c-section but that was due to placental abruption (hernia not known before birth--not sure if this something that can be diagnosed before birth). She is now a happy, healthy, intelligent almost 6 year old.

Good luck!  (+ info)

diaphragmatic hernia without mention of obstruction or gangrene?

I had an egd today and I was diagnosed with "diaphragmatic hernia".. was wondering, what is this?

This is when there is an opening in the diaphragm (muscle that is involved in breathing located beneath the lungs separating the chest and abdomem) which causes the intestines to move into the chest cavity. Without obstruction or gangrene is good news as this means there is no blockage of the intestines which can happen as a result of a hernia.
Here is more info from a great medical site:

Any non US facilities have success at Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia?

Looking for the most advanced doctor/hospital outside the US with facilites and experience to deliver a baby diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. Latin America is closest, but will travel to other. Baby due in six months, no time to pursue US immigration process.

Get medical treatment and surgery in India.Thats the best method.General Surgery is very cheap in India.There is one company that is very famous in India that arranges surgery for foreigners in India.They are called the Forerunners Healthcare.I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and about their patient stories.I have also read that they arrange financing for american and canadian patients as all surgery is not covered by insurance.

They also have photos pasted of their International patients.You can checkout their website.The cost savings are incredible.As a doctor i personally believe that your kids hernia surgery can be easily handled in India as the quality of healthcare available here is simply best in the world.The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.

my cousin got her sons septal defect surgery in India through the forerunners healthcare in India and is all praise for this company. She is more than very happy with the results.her child is absolutely normal and has no cyanotic episodes,and is as active as any other kid of his age now she just paid 30% of the amount she was quoted in USA.this amount included her travel and stay cost also.i stongly recommend you to talk to this company as they can be of great help to you in future concerning diaphgramatic hernia surgery,because i have seen the Indian hospitals and am very sure of the quality healthcare available their.hope this helps.

What are the Nursing and Medical Management of patient having Diaphragmatic Hernia?

There are surgeries to correct this or basic symptomatic treatments. Most people with severe hiatal hernias have surgery.
Otherwise, you can manage by eating smaller meals, sitting upright after a meal for an hour or so, and putting blocks under the legs of your bed on the head end to keep yourself from laying completely flat. There are many more ways to treat this, but there wouldn't be room here to write them all. Check with Web MD....  (+ info)

I was a very scarry time. She is 6 months old now and you can't even tell anything was wrong with her except for the scar on her belly.  (+ info)

Is there Financial help for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) parents & babies?

If so where?

Have you tried medicaid? They pay 3 months before you get it and current and future medical bills.

You should also apply for SSI. They can help with $$ until the baby is better. You get a monthly check based on your income. http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/11000.html

If you don't qualify there are foundations that can help you with your medical bills.

I'm not sure if these organizations offer $$ but they may help you find a way.
I'm a preemie mom and I know a friend that got help from the march of dimes for their preemie.

Free money isn't' always free. You have to do a lot of phone calling and leg work.  (+ info)
