My son was diagnosed with hirschsprungs at 4 weeks old.  Do i go to minneapolis university hospital, or should I go straight to cincinnati where they specialize in the disease? Short segment suspected

Ask about ...: ... Case volumes. If your are sure the diagnosis is correct (and as it was a university program I am assuming they see many referrals and thus am assuming diagnosis is correct) then the treatment is going to be surgical. The key question then is how many hirschprung surgeries the specific surgeon (not the program) has done. In this case more is better. ...Read more

Qualify for disability? has pots visit the hospital at least once a month and are usually admitted for 5 days she's cant go to school or activities

Needing insurance?: We don't want kids to be "disabled" but to find what they can do and build hobbies or eventually a career based on what they CAN do. Parents can ask the county for help. Here in my local area, the county program helps in several ways, and there is even some money for respite care for some families (so caretakers can take breaks). One might try applying for Medicare if insurance help is needed. ...Read more

Age 23,anxiety at college,parents still care like a 2 years old kid,My family members respect me even elders,was at bad school,not ok in social,cause?

Counseling: Report to the campus counseling center. Depression in college is very common because of all the changes that ollege students have to go through adjusting from the impact of moving from their small towns or big cities or wherever else to college life, and stepping toward autonomy. It often represents too much change into short period of time. Counseling likely will be of benefit. ...Read more

Where would u have child's MRI w/sedation- children's hospital outpatient center or hospital? Imaging director said only difference is no "code team"?

Where would u have child's MRI w/sedation- children's hospital outpatient center or hospital? Imaging director said only difference is no "code team"?

Hard to say: Many facilities are unique in their approach to this issue and follow strict guidelines on who is present for such a study. In my area they require an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist be present whose only job is tending to the patient continuously. A code team down the hall doesn't seem better than a one on one with the leader of such a team. ...Read more
