I am so torn on this.
My 7 month old baby is scheduled for an MRI on May 9th.
He was born with a sacral dimple...its not to the extreme that is shown here on the internet. When he was just a cell and it split in two to begin forming the baby he is..a part didnt completley close.So he has what looks like an "extra butt hole" (sorry, best way I could describe it). The thing is..you can't see the floor of it..so we don't know if that tiny hole pockets in deeper and goes into his spine.
So we've got this scheduled MRI..where he will have to be sedated.He will be knocked out cold.
The thing is..if they do find out something is wrong..its not like it would be correctible anyway..it would pretty much be a matter of knowing that something indeed is not formed correctly.
I am torn because I am so afraid of having him sedated.Just last year a 13 year old girl was sedated for a simple dental procedure and she never woke up, she passed away. They said on the news..well..its a known fact that there is a percentage of death with sedation. Parents have to sign a waiver form to allow their children to be sedated.
How can I sign that? I mean..I know for the most part...everyone is fine with sedation. But what if my baby is one of the percentage that is not.And for what? Just to KNOW that something is wrong?
I just don't know.I am so confused on this.My dh agrees with me..and he's confused too..but leaving the final decision up to me.
What would YOU do in this case if this were your child?
