My daughter is suspected to have acid reflux again. She had it as an infant, and seems to have it again (she was symptom free for over a year and a half). So my options are:
find a safe medicine to use on her, if I do this I want to know all the potential side effects both short and long term, if I do this, it only helps with symptoms, it doesnt FIX the problem.
do not treat with medicine but change her diet, I have no clue what to feed her that would be low in acidity, we eat cheap and healthy here. We occasionally eat homemade fried chicken or hamburger helper, but most is homemade and chocked full of fruits and veggies. again, relieves pain, doesnt fix the problem
consider surgery to fix the problem entirely so she wont have to continue to be medicated and in pain, but am I okay or financially able to deal with a major surgery on my 3 year old? Not likely.
Has anyone else had to deal with reflux in their kiddos? Are their medicines you used? What did you ultimately decide to do? Any good websites I can go to for information?
