So this post is weird for me to even write because I am utterly confused. So the surgeon (Mon.) said that Logan needs to have surgery on his intestines. He didn’t do any tests or exams he just told me that once Logan’s heart is stable enough to tolerate it he will need the Ladd’s procedure. I’m pretty disappointed about this. I mean before he was born I had thought this was something that he would need if we found out his intestines were malrotated, but when he was in the hospital (last month w/ suspected intestinal problems) I was told he was not at risk for an obstruction and wouldn’t need surgery, I was soooo happy. So now this is just another surgery little Logan is going to have to endure. Still confused though, as to why out of the blue the surgeon called to set up an appointment and then changed his mind like that…and almost 5 weeks after his initial conclusion.
I have made an appointment for this coming Wed. at the Cleveland Clinic for him to see a GI Dr. I would like to just start over and get someone else’s opinion. Cleveland Clinic is known for their gastroenterologist so I will feel much more confident in their opinions.
