Little person, BIG belly
April 30th 2014 birth: Matteo was delivered via emergency c-section and rush to the NICU for respiratory problems and a distended stomach. GI testings results all came back normal after a 10 day stay in the NICU.
Matteo at 8 Months: back at the hospital for chronic constipation issues, a full clean out done and an endoscopy & colonscopy was done and the results came back no signs of anything major.
14 months : Back at hospital for major distension of colon & chronic constipation, now the term Hirschsprung's disease came along which would mean no nerves in his colon to help his bowel. Biopsy was done and results came back negative and Hirschsprungs was ruled out.
Matteo at 2 1/2: We spent Christmas at the hospital for another clean out because enemas were no longer working to help relieve him.
January 14th, 2017:We are at the hospital, with a Result.Matteo was diagnosed with a rare case of CHRONIC INTESTINAL PSUEDO OBSTRUCTION ( a condition in which there are symptoms of blockage of the intestine without any physical blockage) He already has had 2 surgeries preformed on him, leaving him with a feeding tube and stoma. Although things are still not moving along...
Please pray for my little person, and his big belly.
Thank you all, for reading our story.
