Hello, My 9 week old son Stefan has just been tested for CF (sweat test) and we are awaiting the results/
He was born March 17/00 and weighed 8 lbs 2 ozs. He only weighs 9 lbs 15 ozs now. He is diagnosed
as a Failure to Thrive. He eats 42 ozs of formula a day. He is always hungry. Yet he is NOT gaining
much at all. Also he has had a mucousy nose since birth and also slimy, pale yellowish poops that are
very smelly and greasy looking. I don't know much about CF so I need to know what you all think about
my son's situation. I am very much wondering if he has a chance to not have CF? I guess what I am trying
to cling to is if he does have it, is there any quality of life for him in the future? Also if he does have it is it
true that boys are sterile later on?
Thanks. I am waiting for the results and will post them for you all to hear about when I get them.
