X-Rays Showed A Lot Of "air Bubbles"
0

2 posts in this topic

So I put my foot down like so many of you suggested and went to the children's hospital full steam ahead to get my 22mo tested for celiac (distended belly, fussy, chronically ill, small arms and legs, 10th percentile weight and height, always fussy following eating, seemingly lactose intolerant etc. ps. I have celiac disease... obvious red flag).

GI specialist wants to do xrays and bloodwork first but said he thinks the only real way of telling is the scope (he's hesitating to put her through that yet, especially bc she's young and it may not come out clear one way or another).

anyway...

i insist. im so sad for her.

they did the blood work out (don't know until monday) and xrays.

immediately the tech said she sees A LOT of "air bubbles" in her stomach and asked when the last time she ate. I explained I had her eat a lot of "gluten type things" that day and the last time before testing was about an hour. She said "ah. okay".

can someone tell me (because I have zero patience whatsoever) what that could mean?

gas obviously? indigestion?

is my poor child walking around in constant discomfort???

HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN JUST PUT HER ON A STRICT GLUTEN FREE DIET????

im so frustrated. i want her better.

She could be trying to estimate food transit time, fermentation time and amount, possible aerophagia (swallowing air) which is what my doctor always said I must be doing. Some of us are just a lot more gaseous than others.
