I took my son to a specialist today to see what i should do next. He was having issues with not wanting to eat anything, but within the last 3 weeks has started eating more foods. He is breastfed and is 8months old. He is less than the 3rd percentile in his weight, but was in the 90th percentile in his head circ. The doctor suggested we get an MRI on him to make sure he doesnt have water around his brain. He has some development delays and with that and the head measurement the doc wants to rule that out. I dont know if im real comfortable about getting him an MRI so i am going to talk it over with his PCP on Wednesday when he has his wellness checkup. I was just wondering what you would do and how you would feel about this situation. I will get the MRI done if his PCP thinks it is necessary, but i still am understandable nerveous about it. Thanks for reading.Answer Question
My little one had an MRI done when she was a bit younger. It was scary for me, but it's good for me to know that everything is ok, & now they have a reference picture in case anything ever goes wrong. They had us not give her anything after midnight the night before, & when we got there they mixed the stuff to put her to sleep into her bottle. The worst side effect was that she had a sore throat for a few days afterwards, & waiting for it to be finished was hard. Hugs, doll! Feel free to PM me about more details if you like.
