  • I find all kinds of information about infants and NEC but cannot find any information about children in their late teens and into adulthood. I have identical twin sons now age 19. One twin developed NEC and the other did not. He asks many questions about his prognosis as an adult including life expectancy. Do you have any information I can give him or some internet sources that may answer questions for him that are not infant or child related? Click here for answer
