We just got back from Christians two month check up and he might have a hernia in his testicle. So now we get to go to the childrens hospital to get an ultrasound first thing in the morning. Has anyone had this with one of thier kids? The doctor said that if it isn't too bad we can wait until he is six months old to get it fixed.

Eek!!!

We went through the same thing when my ds was born when he was like a week old. He went for the ultrasound and it ended up that it was just a hydrocele which is just fluid around the testicle that goes away on its own. I guess the good part is that your ds doesn't have the bad type of hernia that stops blood flow bc if they thought that they would have had an immediate ultrasound to see. From all the info i got from them, it is just a small same day surgery to get it fixed and then they go home that day. Let us know.
