Yianni was born 09/08. He has MSPI. He was diagnosed with GERD at two weeks. He is currently taking Prevacid three times per day (7.5, 7.5, & 15). He was on Reglan for eight months and was doing much better. We took him off because of the hype. Now we are riding the reflux roller coaster again.
Can DS & I travel two days after endoscopy/ph probe?
DS is having an endoscopy and 24 hour ph probe on Thursday to check for eosinophilic esophagitis and to see if the Prevacid is working. We have plans to meet DH at work (Europe). GI says it is fine to travel. He will keep in touch with us via email. He wants to do the scope before we leave. I tried to wait, but he wants to start treating for EE if it is that. Those of you with LOs who have had this done, do you think he can handle two airplane flight if he ends up in the arms of his dad at the end? I do and so does DH. It is our parents who are aghast that I would even attempt to travel. DS is ten months old. Also, the GI said I could give him Mylanta. Will this affect the test? How about tylenol or mylicon? He is having a really rough time (stomach pain, fluid coming up, gasping for air, and not sleeping). Thanks for being so helpful and for blazing the trail we are now walking.

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
I would NOT give any meds right now unless the GI tells you that you can. We had to be completely off all meds for Jedd's probe. So, I'd call and ask before you give anything.

As far as traveling, I'd go for sure. Jedd was acting completely normal within a couple of hours after coming out of sedation.

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
we have the probe this week, but Z was fine within 45 minutes of the endo...he cried for about 15 when the anaesthesia wore off, then proceeded to play all day! Go on your trip! Enjoy Oh, and we had to be off all meds starting today for our PH probe on Thurs...so I would be wary of doing meds! Ditto Jessica!
