Things are looking better for my son and I am feeling a little more relieved. I put him on 1/2 dose of calcium caltrate and that has controlled his diarrhea very well. No diarrhea= no pain so he hasn't had the severe pain attacks at all. It has been 4 days. Also he is still on a pretty bland diet but I just bought him some baby food and am introducing some veggies back in. I found some chewable digestive enzymes for him to take. From what I read, people who could not tolerate most food could eat almost everything when they took this stuff. I'm still going to introduce things one at a time and am using the Eating for IBS recipe book as a guide. I know he is not back to normal quite yet as he continues to have some gas and cramping as well as queasiness. I have been giving him peppermint tea and peppermint altoids and he has been on the probiotics for two weeks which have been working great. I have to say all these remedies have worked a lot better than any prescription drug that I have given him.
We are supposed to take him in for more blood work as requested by Children's Hospital so I am hopeful they will be able to squeeze us in the near future as soon as we get those results back.
