Update on boys

Well the blood tests came back on both boys and was normal. Yes I am glad. Of course! Izzaks xrays were all normal as well. I didn't want any of the things they were looking for to be found but at the same time it is really frustrating to know they are still having the problems but no answers.

I spoke to Izzaks dr today and she wanted to refer him to an orthopedist. She is convinced it is his back that is hurting him even with the xrays being normal. Since the blood work and kidney ultrasound were normal. I will take him to one here in town. They don't have pediatric ortho's here but I will start with a local one. He is almost adult size but if he does find anything he is concerned about I will take him out of town to a peds. I would just rather have some one experienced with kids do anything. I just want to know what is going on with him since they don't beleive obviously anymore that his back pain is from constipation. He is still very sensitive to people touching him in the area and it is not just on his spine but to the sides as well.

Joshua I know that the labs came back normal but I haven't gotten to really speak to his doctor yet to see where he wants to go from here. He is still having hip and knee pain and I have a feeling he will be on his way to the ortho doctors as well.

Izzak has his ortho appointment next Tuesday so we will see where he wants to go from here and what he thinks. Joshua I will try to get ahold of his doctor tomorrow if he is back in town and see what his dr wants to do with him as well. He does also have an appointment in December to go over his ADHD meds and possibly make some changes since it is not really being as effective lately and I want to talk to him about trying something else maybe I don't know but even his teacher is having issues with him lately and I am feeling like we are getting back into some of the patterns he was in before starting to take meds. I did some research on his doctor though and found out that he specializes in ADHD so that is pretty cool that we just happened to see him.

I will update again when I find out anything new or talk to the other dr.

I am delighted the results were clear and this will ease the anxiety of waiting for both you and the boys too.

Looks like you have a specialist team where you live and that is good news for any further assessments.

sorry to not get answers... that's tough. but at least you have a couple of things ruled out. that's always good news. especially the hereditary stuff with Joshua.

keep us updated! and try to take care!

Glad they didn't find what they were looking for. I hope they find a simple explanation soon, that can be fixed.

it's good they didn't find anything, but also frustrating that they are still looking. prayers for all of the doctors to help him with the pain!!

thank goodness the test results came back clean, but gosh... to still be in the dark about the pain... I can't imagine. Good luck and I sincerely hope you get all the answers you need (and, of course, the ones you want).
