my son was in the e.r wednesday night because we thought he might have pyloric stenosis. so they had us go to our dr thursday to see what they say. our dr sent us to get an ultra sound and an upper g.i. done. well not even 20 mins after the upper g.i. was done we recieved a call saying he did and to go to Vandy Childrens hospital to double check and have surgery..
the docs down in nashville sayin he doesnt have pyloric stenosis...he has reflux...when they did the ultra sound they didnt have weston drink anything...and when the doc came in he starting talkin bout the esphagus to the stomach...but if u look up pyloric stenosis...its not from the esphagus to the stomach...its the stomach to the small intestine.....and i told them the the docs. in bowling green were talkin bout the stomach to the small intestine...but the docs in nashville said that the doc up in bowling green where wrong and they dont know what they are lookin for...so as of now me and ash...we dont believe anything any of the doc. in nashville say....so as of right now weston has all the signs of having plyoric stenosis...but he has gain 7 oz in the last week...well today we went back to the drs where we live and they called up to Lousiville and the general surgeon up there says he baisically starting to get it. we are on the border line of it.
but we are getting judged because my dh and i both had an instinct that what vandy told us wasnt right..
In my opinion, it's NEVER wrong to seek a second, third, fourth, and so on opinion. That's your right and it's great to take charge of your own health instead of listening to ONE Dr.s opinion. I think it was especially great in your case since they can't seem to figure out, or agree on what is wrong with your child.
