My daughter was diagnosed at 3 weeks old with eec, no family history other than an great aunt and grandad with webbing on there toes. She was also found to have bilateral coanal atresia. This lead to her having a trachostomy being carried out a 2 months old after 2 failed attempts to open up her nasel passage and enable her to breath easier. Has anyboby else found this problem? Between that and the hand and foot surgery she has just completed her 17th operation. How has anybody else tackled the questions from a 4 1/2 year old about why is her hand and foot different from everybody else? If there are any other members from scotland we would be interested in hearing from you as we are trying to find others to perhaps meet or keep incontact with how has experience of local hospitals as to correct her nasel problems we have spent the past year travelling to GOSH every 6-8 weeks

Hi Carla, and welcome to ED Forums. Firstly, I ask you to be patient with the forum. It is only just gaining public interest, we'll get there soon!

Was nice to read your story, in terms of members in Scotland I'm not too sure if there are any on the forum just yet. I can't really answer your question about talking to a child so young about it but I think everyone deals with it differently.

Sorry I can't be of much help!

Again, welcome. You'll enjoy it here cheers
