Tracey, mom to Katie. Diagnosed with reflux at 3 weeks and put on Zantac. At 8 months old she was removed from Zantac as it was giving her migraines, currently on Prevacid. Switched to Elecare since she is not gaining weight; trialing solids after being off for a month. Geneticist said reason she isn't gaining weight is she is stubborn. Upcoming appts.: Neurologist for developmental delay and EGD scheduled for September. She is one funny baby!

Hi Juli! How is Katie doing? Did her fever go down? Is she still in pain? Katie didn't eat/drink a lot yesterday but I think that is probably normal since she was intubuated(sp?) and scoped the day before which can't feel good.

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
Hi Tracey. THanks for asking. She is feeling much better - back to her old self. It was pretty scary for a while there. We will have to remember that she had this reaction for future procedures.

Katie didn't eat or drink much either but is eating more now.

I feel so relieved to have had it done. I am so glad that everything looks good in her tummy. We will find out on Monday or Tuesday how all the tests came out.

The surgeon just called and said she has some inflammation in her stomach so we will be increasing her morning dose of prevacid slightly.
