I got a note from my niece who said that those two articles referenced were the most up to date information that she knows of. She also cautioned that in these studies, no other factors were taken into account. So, for those children who did have more surgeries and higher instances of learning disabilities, the underlying reasons why they needed multiple surgeries were not noted. She also said the instance of learning disabilities is rising in all populations (which is true, I know).
Tell me: what is your concern for this and for your child? How many times do you think GA will be needed?
