5 Year Old Having Colonoscopy

28 May 2015 - 09:59 AM

Hi, my son is 5 and has struggled with GI issues ever since he started solid food at 7 months old.  We had a difficult time finding a doctor to treat him, so we finally put him on a 100% gluten-free diet when he was a little over 2.  His improvement was dramatic, so we have continued the diet.  He has very bad reactions even when he just touches something that someone who has eaten gluten has touched.  He is also off dairy because he seemed to have trouble with that too.  Although not as bad as the gluten.  Well, almost 4 months ago he started having rectal bleeding.  It was daily for about 3 1/2 months but has let up in the past 2 weeks.  It was concerning so we took him to a specialist and they scheduled him for a colonoscopy and endoscopy next week.  All that to say, do any of you have experiences to share of your kids having a colonoscopy?  I am a little nervous about it.  Thanks so much!
