i dont know if i can be any help but however, greasy stools means like your described, its stringy. you can almost see the grease in the stools. ive always had this but however my docs have been to stupid to test me for ne thing. and when it should be a concern if your daughter has painful bubbly sounds in her tummy as well as the poor weight gain. i wish ya the best and hopefully your daughter just has something simple to deal with however if she has cf its not the end of the world, there are so many worse diseases such as cancer etc etc etc. but its wont be an easy road at first. they will have to find the rights meds to go with her body and so on. anyways i wish ya the best.
Hi Lucy's mom,
I just wanted to let you know that I was diagnosed with CF at 2 weeks old and it sounds like your baby is having some of the same problems I was having. I couldn't keep on weight and everything I ate went right through me. It got to the point (I was told) that as my mom would feed me it would come through me before I was even done! The stools sound about right too. I obviously couldn't tell you if your daughter has CF but if it was me I would get the sweat test done for CF as soon as posible. The sooner she gets diagnosed the sooner she can be helped and hopefully put on weight. I know my mom said that she knew something was wrong with me but the doctor kept telling her she was a nervous mother. He didn't send me to a specialist until I got down to a scary weight. Don't wait that long! A mother's instinct is usually correct.
I truly hope that it turns out to be something minor but if it is CF please know that it is not the end of the world. My mom was told I wouldn't live to see 20 and I just turned 30!
I wish you the best of luck. You and your daughter will be in my thoughts.
