My cute neice
So here's what happened they get her in and the doctor starts scoping her but doesn't go far...looks shocked takes out the scope quickly in tells my SIL that they need to do surgery on her right now. thankfully she was already under and did not need anymore prep work so she consents and a huge polyp is removed. turns out what they had thought was her intestines that she had pushed out when trying to go potty one time was in fact the polyp.
It was so big that it was blocking waste from leaving her body if they had waited to long to find and remove it the waste could have ended up in her stomach which would have killed her. This also explains why she had not been eating nor drinking well. The polyp (which can also turn cancerous) has been removed and she is now recovering.
Also just learned as in while I was writing this how a little girl this young could form a polyp this big. If the mother is physically abused while pregnant these can form from stress. now I should say my SIL was not abused but she was also not the one carrying her. She is adopted my SIL can not have children and was given this girl from well her sister in law who was abused. Important thing is she's fine and in a loving home,. just wish I could giver her a huge, but Hawaii is so far away.
