I noticed an old post and thought id start a new one!
Im a mum of a 19 month old "clefty" boy born with a complete bilateral cleft lip and palate. He has had 2 surgeries so far for the repairs as well as having grommets put in.
There are still 2 more operations that we know of, to come. One being his nose, making the tip longer. And the bone graft into the gum. And possibly some cosmetic stuff later on the scarring. Not to mention the orthodontics, speech therapy etc.
Plus there may be an underlying condition that has caused this. We are waiting on test results for chromosome disorders.
Would love to hear from any mums (and dads) with "clefties"!! Im in Sydney by the way smile
