My 18 month old son has just had a four day stay in hospital to be treated for a chest infection. He's had a bad chest on and off for the past 6 or 7 months and has had antibiotics and various inhalers.
Chest infection is now under control but docs are concerned about his tummy - its very bloated at times, and that coupled with the coughing, wheezing and chest infections, they have asked for a sweat test next Tuesday.
I know the tummy thing is a symptom, but have browsed this forum and no one else has really mentioned it? He's gained weight fine and was on the 99th centile just before his first birthday. We had to have an ultra sound but all it showed was lots of gas - we're waiting on an appointment for a full scan. We're also waiting on results from various allergy tests and stool samples.
Will I get sweat test results instantly? I can't bear this waiting lark.
