Quick Question About Endoscopies And Being Sick...

Recommended Posts

So, my 6 year old is scheduled for his endoscopy on June 19th. We're FINALLY a week away....almost there!

 

Now he's sick. I'm taking him in later today because he's been complaining that his throat hurts and he's been running a fairly high fever....and he puked two nights ago (but now I'm never sure if he's sick when he pukes or if it's the Celiac's).

 

So....my question is...if he has something like strep...will they still do the endoscopy next Wednesday? My husband took off work and we have to go almost 3 hours away from home in order to have this done. Ahhhh....I hope he doesn't have strep and not just because of the endoscopy. Though...he doesn't have his tonsils so I know strep is pretty rare...but I don't know what else it could be.

 

I just want to get the endoscopy done so we can get his diet changed. It's pretty sad when a six year old is asking you to give them Miralax because they know it helps or has helped them to feel better. :(

I doubt they will do any procedure that involves sedation on a sick child.  My son had his adenoids removed and tube inserted in his ears several years ago, and we had to re-schedule the morning of the operation (we were already admitted and he was in a gown on the bed) because he had a bit of congestion from a cold and they heard him cough once. 

 

But these viruses can run through rather quickly so maybe he will be fine by then.  Positive thoughts to you!

Thanks...that's kind of what I figured. I'm really hoping this just gets through his system quickly and we're good to go next week. I can't imagine having to reschedule this. They book out so far and I don't think I could keep feeding him like this when it is obviously making him feel bad. :(
