What are the long-term problems?
Some babies with gastroschisis are sometimes slower at establishing weight gain and some may have problems with constipation but these are normally short term problems.
Babies who have had a silo will not have an umbilicus (tummy button) but it is now possible to have surgery later in childhood to create one. Following an operation there is always a small risk of future obstruction occurring. If your baby has a bilious vomit or a distended abdomen medical advice should be sought.
