Well, DS of course would not take the bowel prep. We were admitted the night before, he was sedated and given a nasogastric tube. They pumped in the prep overnight. No fun for anyone :( He responded poorly to the anasthesia and did not awaken for 8 hours and spiked a temp.
The colonoscopy revealed nodular lymphoid hyperplasia. We are waiting on biopsies to either be referred to immunology or oncology. :(
Due to recurring intussceptions, (3 in all and one requiring emergency surgery) our pediatric GI specialist has ordered a colonoscopy for Feb 11th for our 15 month old DS.
Our family is no stranger to the joy known as bowel preps. DH has Ulcerative Colitis with multiple scopes and surgeries.They are checking DS for Crohn's :(
DS does not take bottles and does not really take a sippy cup. I don't think we can get enough bowel prep in him by regular cup. We are using flavored Pedalyte and Mirilax.
Any great ideas? Ideally, the doc wants him to have 4 8 oz cups, but half of that is fine. Basically,the more prep he gets, the better scope the doc can get.
