View Full Version : New from Italy
I'm the mother of a little boy dx with sagittal synostosis at 15 months, he will have a CVR surgery the 7th of May (the day he'll turn 18 months...)
Now that we have only 15 days left before the surgery I am really scared but reading this forums is (and has been for the past months) a great confort...
Thank you very much to you all!!!:clap
Mum of Maddy (2 1/2) and Manu (17 months)

Hi Vero! :welcome
I'm the father of Leonardo who has 3 1/2 months and was diagnosed of craniosynostosis (turricephaly) just after he was born on 8/01/08.
He 's currently monitored in a hospital In Monza and he will probably have surgery in June-July when he will be 6 months.
Which hospital are you attending?.

Welcome to cranio kids, Im sorry you little one faces surgery, so does mine come june or july, its a tough time but this site will make you feel loads better about his upcoming surgery, there are plenty of mums for you to talk too about saggital.
its a great place to be.
Thank you!! you are very welcoming people!!!
Heather: as many people here I keep popping in the forum to see if there's any news about Patrick... is he already out o surgery???
Leonardo's dad: I live near Milan and after having our boy visited at Firenze, Paris and Bergamo we've chosen the last one because there works a PS trained at Miami children's Hospital and does the CVR. most european NS prefer the strip craniectomy or similar but Manuel is already too old for that type of surgery...

Welcome, Vero. My son had surgery for metopic synostosis a little over 3 months ago (at 6 months), and he bounced back so quickly, it was amazing. He was back to his old self in just three days. The first picture in the last row of pictures below was taken on the way home from the hospital (surgery was on a Thursday and we went home on Sunday). I'm sure Manu will do just as great - our little ones have such an incredible strength and the surgeons are amazing (and it sounds like you have picked an excellent surgical team). Best of luck to you. Please keep us updated.

Welcome to CranioKids. My son Gavin had a CVR for sagittal when he was one. Please feel free to ask any questions. You have found a great support network. You will be amazed at how fast your son will bounce back. Sending my thoughts. I know how difficult this must feel right now.
