7 posts in this topic

Hi I just needed to vent somwhere! and I find you very helpful. I just don't know how I am going to get my DD through these next few days. The dr's have her on a liquid only diet for 2 days before the test which is wednesday. ONly drinks and jello she is hyperglycemic so i am waiting for her to crash any second. I let her go to school this morning but picked her up for lunch I did not think it was fair to have her sit there while everyone ate. I am so nervous about the testing they are doing the endoscope and a coloscopy (there was blood in her stool). Her 1st blood tests came back positive but the GI dr did a different blood test that came back negative. they have done upper gi's, allergy testing, ulrasounds and numourous other testing I just can not wait for them to figure out what is wrong. Shes foggy headed alot, her belly swells pretty big after she eats. shes always tired, gets confused easily, has constant stomach pain sometimes severe I will find her laying on the bathroom floor some nights crying it hurts so bad She has also now had 2 episopes where she has been bede ridden for a day with severe belly pain and headaches her list of symptoms go on. celiac disease seems to be the answer I just hope they figure it out soon. HOw did you other parents get through these test I am a nervous wreck THey will be putting her to sleep I think thats making me very nervous. Sorry for ranting I am just on edge THanks for listening.

I know how difficult it must be to watch your child go through this. I had the biopsy last month and I slept peacefully and didn't even know they had done the procedure. You'll be in my prayers. If she has Celiac, at least you'll finally know what it is and head in the direction of wellness :)

I'm silly but I chose to think of it this way.. I was going to joke with the anaestesiologist that he should come by the house every day around 1:30 so I can get my ornery toddler to take a nap every day!

It'll be fine!

I'll be hoping that all goes well, and that you receive a speedy reply. If the diagnosis is Celiac, you have a route to good health that will help you forget all this pain and suffering that has occurred. Godspeed! Welda

Why the fluid only diet? I would have thought this could sway the results. Grace was NBM (Nil Orally) for 8 hours before surgery but was encouraged to be on a diet containing Gluten up until her biopsy.

I hope they find an answer for you as having a sick child is very debilitating for your spirit as a parent.

Good Luck.

Wendy, I believe the fluid diet is used to clear out the digestive tract as much as possible so the endoscope has freedom of movement.

Ah probably another difference in protocols in different countries. I used to nurse in Theatres and we did endoscopes regularly. In Australia and NZ rarely we put people on Fluid only etc, Usually just the usual Nil By Mouth for 8-12 hours.

Thanks for your reply, I was just curious cause sometimes the preparations for the tests are quiet difficult and traumatic for kids and it would be nice if the preps were as simple as possible.

Cheers

Wendy

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
