Discussions that mention singulair

Ms Twiddle,
Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think they put a trach tube in for this type of sedation.
He also had a bronchoscopy and endoscopy the same time (the 3 specialists coordinated this so he would only have to be put to sleep once). Yes - I feel very blessed about it. So he did have a tube down his throat, but it didn't seem to bother him. He still was out to me about 15 minutes once the anesthesia was stopped. And he had no side effects from it - now he had a ENG tube in place (tube from his stomach that come out his nose and hooked up to a monitor) that had to stay in place for another 24 hours, but he was able to eat, drink, and sleep without any problems.
My 5 yr old daughter had the same GI tests done too and she only hated the ENG tube (wanting to pull it out). Other than that - I think she would have been fine.
I know its scary for a mom to think of their child being in a room you're not allowed in for testing. And being sedated is scary (especially the first time for moms), but rest assured that you will be amazed at how fast and easy this will be for your daughter - worse for you cause of you anxiousness.
This was the best thing for my son and my daughter. Undiagnosed acid reflux had led to some asthma (of which the damage proved to be reversible with treatment). So, the both take Nexium and Singulair everyday and it has made all the difference in the world.
As for you daughter - I was reading your other post about the large stools. My son still has issues with this and I was curious about asking the GI doc about it again. He had given us miralax the last time. Does your daughter have to run to the bathroom for either elimination? It's like my son doesn't have the sensation to go until it's urgent.
Hope everything goes well with your daughter!
