A 24-year-old member asked:

Is pyloric stenosis as a child related to weight problems as an adult?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 34 years experience
No: Pyloric stenosis as a child (presumably corrected at that time) does not have any relationship to one's adult weight. Pyloric stenosis is unusual tightness at the outlet end of the stomach, blocking the stomach contents from emptying into the intestine, so babies with the condition have forceful vomiting.
Dr. Janet Meller
Pediatric Surgery 42 years experience
No: Pyloric stenosis is not associated with problems as an adult.
Dr. Troy Reyna
Pediatric Surgery 45 years experience
No: Once pyloric stenosis is corrected the infant will be normal with long term sequelae being extremely rare.
