My poor son has been threw the ringer and with even more to come.
The doctors have no clue what is going on with him -- could be anything from major food allergies, to celiac, to crohn's disease, to his GI tract not developing properly, to who knows what!
This blog is about poops....my son has never in his life had a "normal" poop. His whole life he has had diarrhea, or runny, or soft serve type poops.
The first solid poop he has ever had has been on a day where he ate NO food orally and was only receiving his special formula threw his tubie.
Tests: right now we are waiting on 8 stool tests to be run. After that we will be doing and upper endoscope, a lower endoscope, a colonoscopy, along with multiple biopsies. His allergists is running another set of blood work for food allergies, skin testing for food allergies, and also patch testing for food allergies, along with more immune system testing.
The poor kid has already had the majority of these tests done in the past. So, you ask the reason for running them again -- the reason is because just because they come back fine one time doesn't mean his body couldn't have changed. UGH - just another one of Zach's Life's Struggles!
