Q.

Reflux

Good day

My 21 months old who was refluxing since Feb has been diagnosed with pyloric spasm, Is this treatable? and how? We did the test today and I e-mail them to his Doctor but he will be in office next week.

Thank you

This is unusual at your son's age.The condition is known as pyloric stenosis and is mostly diagnosed soon after birth.. It can certainly be treated. If an operation is required this is very successful.
