I have an 8 year old son with calcification and health issues, please advise?

I have an 8 year old son. He was a 6 week prem baby. For the last 12 months he has had an on going cough and chest infections. He also gets high temp’s, around 38-40c. He had a ct scan the other week without
IV solution. The doctors can’t seem to understand or come up with a reason for the on going illness. As you can imagine, it is becoming frustrating for him and for us. We have taken him to peads and specialists at the royal children’s hospital. They have been talking about doing a broncoscapy. I don’t really want this to happen. I don’t like having children going under. The ct test came back as the following.
Lungs are symmetrically and normal inflated.
No collapse or consolidation. No air space infiltrate. No bronchiectasis and the bronchi are not large than the accompanying vessels.
No evidence of interstitial lung disease.
No discrete pulmonary nodules or lung masses.
No endotracheal or endobronchial lesions.
No pleural or pericardial effusions.

There are however two calcifications seen in the right hilar region.
possibly reflecting calciification in some lymph nodes. No obvious lymphadenopathy however.
Thymic tissue noted in the superior mediastinum as expected for a child of this age.
Normal appearance of the osseous thorax.
Conclusion
Subtle calcification in the right hilar may relate to some calcification in the lymph nodes.
No obvious lymphadenopathy identified however.
Lung parenchyma is unremarkable. No bronchiectasis.

The doctors don’t seem to understand what they mean by the calcification, they cant work out the report.
No one can give us a proper answer. My poor boy is sick and tired of this going on. It’s like he’s sick for weeks then it goes dorment and then comes back again. He just cant shake it.
He has had Azithromycin 200mg daily 5 days and amoxil 500mg tds 6 days.
These seem to help for a short period.
He had bloods done as well.
The main thing was low iron, if required I can supply the report for this.
Can someone please help.
Regards
Desperate dad

Please help with this for my son’s sake.

My son constantly tilts his head to the side and gets stomach cramps?

My son is 11 years old. Very intelligent and confident. He’s been valedictorian since 1st grade. His problem is he constantly tilts his head to the side especially after eating. If he keeps his head straight he says he gets cramps in his stomach and won’t go away unless he tilts his head.

My 2 year old daughter cannot walk, doctors baffled?

My daughter turned 2 recently and she is finding it extremely difficult walking by her self, however she is able to stand with support and is able to walk using objects like tables or chairs. I have taken her to a few doctors who seem baffled, she has very poor lower limb movement and strength. The size of her lower limb are disproportionate to her upper body, she has no muscle mass in her legs and they may have begun to atrophy? she also has hypermobility in her knees which is also affecting her lower limbs, and walking.
Tests completed:
1. Nerve conduction Studies: very poor results in legs.
2. MRI Spine (under G.A) did not find anything.
3. Blood tests all good!

I had Rubella during pregnancy, will child be crippled or abnormal, should I get an abortion?

I am a married woman of 27 years’ age. My weight is 75 kg and height 5 feet 6 inches.
Since Nov 16 I have been trying for pregnancy. After that my regular menstrual cycle of 28 days used to get delayed by 6 to 10 days.

However, my last menstrual period started on 23.02.17. On 24.03.17, I noticed some red rashes on my face and upper part of body with over 100 degree Fahrenheit temperature. I didn’t go for any test or Doctor. I took one or two anti-allergic tablets as i previously had little bit allergic problems with chilli or hot things. After two days I was o.k.
However, as my menstrual cycle didn’t recur, I went for USG test on 20.4.17, and it confirmed me as pregnant and detected a single live fetus of approximately seven weeks one day.
However, my doctor advised me to undergo rubella IgG test along with certain other routine tests.

All other test reports were o.k.
But Rubella IgG test done on 18.4.17 in A LAB showed the result to be Positive (340 IU/ml) Reference range used was: <10 IU/ml=negative, 10 to 15IU/ml=equivocal, >15IU/ml=positive. My doctor told me that I was immune against rubella, so i need not be worried and should not go for rubella IgM test (as i had recent history of red rashes) since it can’t be detected so late.

I was not satisfied, and on 27.4.17 I went for both rubella IgG and IgM tests done in ‘B’ Lab. The result was anti Rubella antibody IgG: 308.61IU/ml……reference range used is negative: <10.0, positive >10.0.
Anti rubella antibody IgM was: 121.43 AU/ml…reference range used is negative: <20.00, positive >25.00, equivocal: 20.00-25.00

However, I was perplexed and I wanted to be sure about my rubella infection.
On 4.5.17, again I went for both rubella IgG and IgM tests done in ‘A’ lab. It detected rubella antibody IgG as 291 IU/ml….Reference range used was: <10 IU/ml=negative, 10 to 15 IU/ml=equivocal, >15 IU/ml=positive.

It also detected rubella antibody IgM as positive (1.50)….Reference range used was: <0.8 index =negative, 0.8 to 1.2 index =equivocal, >1.2 index=positive.

Sir, my question is do you find any inconsistency in the reports of different labs for tests done on different dates? Why is rubella IgG which stays lifelong unchanged is decreasing? And the most important question is will my Baby be affected by this infection which occurred in early pregnancy? I don’t want to give birth to a crippled or abnormal child.But it is my first pregnancy. What should I do? Should I go for abortion? Will it cause any problem to my future pregnancy? After how many days of abortion, I can try for next pregnancy? What steps need to be taken after abortion in this regard? Please advise.

My 4 week old son fell today from the bed, ER says no CT scan possible, I need your recommendation?

My 4 week old son fell today from the bed while being fed. The height of my bed is roughly 60-70cm… Got a bump on his head exactly on the rear top right side… We took him to the ER where they kept him for observation for 4 hours by only doing physical examination for his body, head and checking his reflex… they ask me to keep an eye if he is vomiting or feeling sleepy etc… As an infant, they are always sleepy, however no vomiting at all… he only cry at the time of eating, but i feel is crying voice is more of pain rather than hunger… The attending told us he wouldn’t do a CT scan if it was his kid… I need your recommendation please… Thanks



I have a 9 year old daughter who suffered some sort of seizure yesterday?

Hi I have a 9 year old daughter who suffered some sort of seizure yesterday. We were sitting down when I realised that she was hitting her chest and was really pale. When I asked her what was wrong she wouldnt respond. She stopped hitting her chest but for the next ten minutes she seemed that she was detached from reality. She
was looking through me, would not respond to any questions, as I put oxygen mask to her mouth she started talking and answering my questions. On the way to hospital she felt so tired and wanted to fall asleep and complained about a head ache. Doctors checked her sugar levels, urine and blood and everything was normal. She did vomit once while at hospital. We took her home and she had head ache for the rest of the night. Next morning everything went back to normal. Doctors could not tell us what was wrong. Any help from you would be more than welcome.
