My daughter was born with metopic craniosynostosis. She was born in 14/01/2014. She had a surgery when she was six months old. We are now in position to decide whether she should have a second operation as the triangular shape has returned. The second surgery will be for cosmetic reasons from what they told us. We are worried how she will react as now she is 2 2/12. We do not know how we should explain to her the process as well as the fact that she will not be able to see for a couple of days. We are worried also if she will remember as well as how her phsycology will be after the operation.
I do not know what type of craniosynostosis your baby? I wanted to ask you how was the second operation compared to the first one as the child is older and the reactions are different. How did you handle the part of explaining things before the operation as well as after the operation. Can you also please tell me the doctor/s name and the hospital you had the second operation?
Thank you very very much.
