Nothing out of the ordinary.

Emma had the Upper G.I. this morning. The test was quick and looked kinda cool on the screen. Nothing was found structurallu. He said he didn't see any refluxing yada yada yada. It lasted about 15-20 minutes. Her refluxing symptoms normally start somewhere around then. But I was more concerned abut structural issues since we already have 3 ph probes indicating reflux. So I guess at this point we start her on the Prilosec and take her back for a weight check in another week and go from there. This is getting exhausted. I'm tired of playing wait and see. I just wish there was something we could do to make her better right now. Hopefully, the prilosec is the key.

have you thought of switching her formula. We went through this with our dd and it started out that she had reflux and they tried meds and did an upper gi when she was 2 months old. I had her on 5 different kinds of formula by the time she was 3 months old. She ended up on Lactose free formula. You might talk to your dr and see if that is an optioin. Hopefully that is and it will help so poor Emma doesn't have to have anymore sugery.

I just read all the updates. This sounds so much like that website I sent you the link to. Perhaps she has suggestions? I hope it's all figured out before oral aversions take place.

We've tried changing formulas and I believe on tuesday her doctor will switch her again.
