Wow, no, but I was just googling that yesterday. My son is constantly constipated. I don't think he has this, as before we went to solids, he was regular and fine...but since we started food, he's on lactulose and I constantly have to "help" him poop. Does one of your children have it? How old were they when they were diagnosed? What's the treatment going to be?

Laura..got this from google "In children with Hirschsprung's disease, a lack of nerve cells in part of the intestine interrupts the signal from the brain and prevents peristalsis in that segment of the intestine. Because stool cannot move forward normally, the intestine can become partially or completely obstructed (blocked), and begins to expand to a larger than normal size."
