Upper Endoscopy
My 10 month old has an upper endoscopy on Monday. Sigh. His reflux is just not getting better, he's gagging on his formula, he has eczema all over his little face and he is just not eating (doesn't eat solids, but is trying hard to stop eating formula as well). She wants to check out his physical make up of his esophagus before we move to the next step, especially after the fiasco with the Carafate last week.

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
With exzema, I would htink there may be a reaction to a food of some type that is getting eaten. Evn if it is the formula. Hoepfully the EDG will give you some much needed answers.

is she taking biopsies? i would ask for allergy biopsies and anything else she can biopsy while she is in there, poor little one i hope the EDG goes well, it really isn't as scary as it seems.

She allergy biopsied his colon. It was inconclusive. I am not sure what all he's allergic to. We do know he's allergic to soy and milk (yikes, that was a fun time in life - not!). I am not sure his upped endoscopy will really tell us much about the eczema, but she wanted to rule out any esophagial issues before we took anymore steps in his reflux care and going to an allergist and such. Thanks for the comfort on it not being a big deal. I think Mommy handles these things much worse than baby boy!

I would ask about the biopsy during the EDG. From what I understand it can be positive for allergy issues in the esophagus even if the others were not. It sounds like the allergist is a good plan too. Poor little guy! I hope he gets to feeling better soon. ((HUGS)) to you!!
