Endoscopy Shows Red Areas Of Inflammation In Stomach.. Help!?

Postby Chayne » Mon Oct 02, 2017 4:43 pm

My son had one performed today.. They are checking for Celiacs disease,ulcers,and lactose intolerance. He's 4 1/2 with severe autism and epilepsy (the seizures are under control with meds.. So he rarely has then.)

Anyways, we don't get the results back of the endoscopy for 72 hours, and the lactose intolerance one takes a months!

His main 2 symptoms are: almost zero appetite, and he lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks (now only 8 because they weighed him today and he gained 2 pounds back!) he's also been very agitated and angry with erratic behavior which is veryyyy odd for him

Since this kid is always bright,bubbly,and happy!! Since being in the hospital a week, he's been doing better and acting more himself.. Just thinner and pale, as well as quiet.. But still smiling and acting a bit happier!

So, what can the red inflammation areas in his belly mean?? The GI Dr said that he did well and nothing stood out other then a few inflamed red areas. He said he could be released today cause he doesn't see any reason to keep him hospitalized for his stomach. (he's staying till Thursday or Friday cause he has to see the psychiatrist for his autism/meds.)

His blood tests/tribes tests/stomach x ray/MRI/EEG/and thyroid check all checked out fine.


Just freaking out it could be cancer:(. If it was, wouldn't they have seen that?? Wouldn't they not have said he can go home?? Help!!

Patience, patience, patience.
That is a hard think to advise when you are in the midst of this like you are, but it is clear that your doctors are aware of both the medical and the autism issues.
They are being very thorough and should find out the cause.

It may help to keep your mind at relative rest, to read and consider the medical issues associated with autism, Aspergers, and ADD.
These include Celiac disease and lactose intolerance.
