still on TPN, insight please?


I have been struggling with my son's belly issues for several months now, without any success in getting off of TPN. After his 4th chemo and surgery, he was placed on TPN and was never able to be without it since. Doctors tryed to go back to NG feeds but his vomiting was so bad that he became dehydrated and ended up in the ER. GI people took a look in his belly but only found hernia and slowed duadinum, nothing remarkable. Has anyone else expereinced this condition, we seem to get nowhere with our doctors. It has been 4 month since BMT and he is only able to tolerate 2 ounces of food per day. Help please,

Daniel's mom,
