Conflicting Doctors.......... Who do I listen to?By: Nick's_Mom (5:52 PM 02/10/2011)
OK, so if you read my introduction, we've been having some problems lately with my son's bacterial overgrowth, leading to dehydration, in return leading to low CO2. I love his GI doc...... but his ideas just don't seam to be working. As a desperate mother, I wrote to many GI pediatric specialists..... a few of whom have called me. One in OH, (we're in CA) wants to see us as soon as possible. I told him of our appointment yesterday and our new "game plan"..... he pretty much disagrees with 90% of it! I can see the points of why he disagrees... they make sense! But while we're working out plane tickets, medical records, insurance....... whose advice do I follow this week?
His regular GI wants us to stop hydration this weekend.... and "see" what happens. ??? I feel like this is setting us up for another relapse. granite, he's on a new probiotic (which the new dr disagrees with)..... uggg.... not really sure what to do. What if I stop, and it lands us in the hospital.... can't make it to OH like that!
