My daughter 2yrs has Cf. And let me say this the foul smelling stools are CF related also constipation due to lack of salt also is CF related it can also cause severe blockage in the intestines be careful. Sweating is also a problem they loose alot of salt which will in turn make hard to use the bathroom. As far a the nose well has anyone checked him for nose polyps? That is something that happens to children with CF. Please call your nearest CF clinic look in your local phone book and also call your local hosspital for a CF center near you and GO have him tested so he can be on the right meds. It doesn,t sound to me like your pediatricyion is very aggressive. Write me and let me know the results.
Thanks Karen
