Does anyone have experience with this? Docs at the hospital are recommending surgery we plan to at least get a second opinion. I have not slept in 2 days and my head is spinning!TIA!
No, sorry. I sure hope everything works out ok.

Yes i had my baby girl #3! And yes this is for her the docs are sayings its relatively common. They see it a few times or more a month. The anus is placed located too close to the vagina and the opening is too small. They want to move it and make it bigger. Claim its a simple procedure but does require general anesthesia I was wondering how common it could be if no one on here has dealt with it seeing as there are so many babies here.Oh well. Thx for the replies!
Let me PM you. I talked to my cousin who is an OB nurse but I think this deserves a PM.

I've seen it. Twice in 18 years. Wouldn't call it common, and would definitely get another opinion for anything "major" in an infant. That said, it is totally fixable if it is real, and she will be fine and beautiful and this is a little roadbump in a long healthy life.
Congrats on your new daughter!
Big hugs. I hope you get some answers soon. Congratulations on your new baby girl!

Working at a University Hospital, I can tell you that I see a dozen people a year with various rare conditions that say their personal doctors never even heard of before they came to us. And because I've been there for 15 years, I've now seen a hundred. I still know that they're rare, though. You could probably get approximate numbers of how common it is. Maybe they see it enough that it does seem relatively common. If they have seen it before, that is more reassuring, certainly, than someone with no experience.
I actually do not have experience, but I do know it happens. Huge hugs to you!
Oh, and I love your baby girl's name! That was one of my top picks.
I looked it up at work as I had never heard of it but I did also see the words common in the description. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14745628
