My son has been in his bed sick all week... he was in the hospital last week. The ped said that he felt like it was a flu with cd... all of his blood test came back in the ranges they normally are, he has never had a sed rate over 30 or an elevated crp... capsule scope showed problems throughout his small intestine, including a sticture in the middle section, and the termial ilium has been a real hot spots for ulcers... he has not had a lot of problems with diarea, but has always gone quite regularly, (3-4xday)
(This week he says that it is different, I don't understand what that means, but it concerns me.)
His ped. told me that they were not going to do anything else because they could not see anything from his blood tests that would need to be treated and his GI told me this morning that she wanted to start him on Milk of Mag, or Miralax in case he was getting a blockage... I told her that he has NOT been going.. I had already been giving him MOM because I was getting woried... I have been giving him 1/4cup of mom for the last two days, If I took that much I think I would be on the toilet for days, but he only had 2bm's that were very watery. However, it did make his stomach go down, and he said he felt a little better... Is there anything else you can do to get things broken down and moving if it is a blockage? Am I over reacting? Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
My 11 year old son was Dx in may of 2007, but he had symptoms of CD at age 7. He was Dx with spondylitis in July of 2007, but had symptoms at age 2. I also have a 6 year old going through testing...
