My son has been sick with a nast wet cough for over 6 months and has been on 8 courses of different antibiotics and is still sick.
His pediatrician thought it was sinus related and sent us to an ENT, who thinks his sinus ct scan doesn't look that bad. We finally wound up at a lung specialist last week who said he had level 1 finger clubbing, low weight for his height and he also did pretty poorly on his lung function tests even after they gave him albuteral.
He's having a sweat test on Monday morning. I'm just wondering if it's very unusual to be diagnosed at 7 years old? he's on advair, singulair, clarinex, flonase and cleocin right now. He's been on some big doses of prednisone recently as well that haven't seemed to help him much. He also uses a xopenex nebulizer as needed.
I'm beside myself with worry right now!
