In brief: Irrigations

If your child is very ill, irrigations with saline in small volumes in and out which can decompress the colon and bypass the obstruction.
This is a temporizing measure. If she is sick, she needs attention. Someone diagnosed hd and should refer you to a pediatric surgeon for care.

She may need antibiotics and possibly surgical decompression.

In brief: Treatment=surgery

The basic treatment of hirschprung disease is surgical.
If a high lesion, a the upper bowel is brought to the skin of the abdomen and an opening created so poo can exit. Later, if possible, this can be relocated to the normal position and reattached to the lower bowel after the blocked area is removed.

In brief: Go to hospital

Your child has an area of their intestine that is not contracting properly.
This can cause severe constipation. There may need to be a surgery to relive this area of the intestines. A pediatric surgeon would be the best person to see. An emergency room can also help you get into see a surgeon if you cannot find one on your own. Good luck.
