Things looked great said the doctor, and so then we waited for the results of the biopsy later that week. Doc called and said the biopsy was negative for allergies to gluten and milk sugar.
This is all well and fine, but how do you explain why he is in extreme pain? We figured, OK, so lets give him a regular diet and see what happens. Maybe after it being so long, his gut had healed? I introduced back into his diet the regular foods, but I did so slowly.
Here it is two weeks later and Ryder is screaming and crying and very frustrated. He has had diarrhea yesterday and today. I just don't get it. I can't tell you how many times I have been lectured by doctors that he needs Miralax (or something similar) to make sure he is not backed up. If I am going to give him Miralax, then please, Doc, come over and clean up the mess it makes all over the carpet, bedding, walls, etc. HE IS NOT PLUGGED UP!! Granted, there have been times that he has been, but not this time.
I feel so defeated and hopeless. My baby is in pain and cannot tell me verbally other than to scream and cry and whine. It grates on my nerves. The endoscopy was my last resort. What about a colonoscopy? The pediatric G.I. never mentioned that.
What if this is some weird undiagnosed condition that he/we will have to live with for the rest of our lives, having no answers? It just plain sucks. Done ranting. Off to do my duties.
