Hi there, my name is Heather and i am a new member to your wonderful group. I have a baby girl named Hadley. She born on March 4, 2012, that has just been diagnosed as a Metopic Cranio kid, along with denting above her eyebrows. She has her surgery set for June 26,2012. This is all new to us,and have a few questions. I was wondering if anybody could help me with.We Live in Fort McMurray AB Canada, and her surgery is being done at the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton AB.Is there anybody on here from around the area, or even had there surgery done there. Our doctor recommended doing the first surgery to fix the closed sutures, but to wait to fix the denting of the eyebrows until she is around the age of three. Is this normal. Or have you had this surgery all in one? Hadley is breast feed, will i be able to breast feed her after surgery, or will the discomfort of laying flat bother her? How long does it take for the swelling to be completely gone? Normal healing time?
