My son, now 17, was...
My son, now 17, was pulled out by forceps and a vacuum. It was pretty traumatic with the nurse saying the dr was crazy and storming out because he was in a hurry to go to a surgery. My son has a deep dent on the top of his head about the length and depth of a finger. He has not had any struggles with education at all, but we have had constant mental health issues, law breaking, and other disruptive emotional problems since he was very young. Could this dent be causing pressure on a part of the brain relating to judgement? It seems like his decision making is more than just a lack of the pre-frontal lobe development

I am sorry about your son.

his dent in his forehead and his use of forceps and vacuum during birth most likely would not have caused mental illness in him

for most patients, we don't know what causes mental illness

most likely it is caused somehow genetically, but we don't know what genes for now.

is your son being seen by a psychiatrist regularly?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
