So I heard back today... Apparently there was not enough tissue for an accurate read. We have decided to return to the first surgeon who operated on him when he was first born, as the lack of communication form this hospital has left a bad taste in my mouth. He will have another biopsy on Monday morning to look for Hirschsprung's. This surgeon remembered my son from when he operated on him before. He has been following my son and even gave me his pager number in case anything came up! He knew exactly who we were when we called today and he threw his weight around to get us in asap. Thank god for him. I will post results when I know them!!

Tuckins~ More prayers being lifted. It sounds like the current dr is a good one, hope he can get things figured out. Until then, deep breaths, stay positive! (((hugs)))

Sorry things are not clear yet, but the new/old doc sounds great! Prayers that he is still feeling okay until a diagnosis or at least some progress is made!

OK, so we have the results of the biopsy, and they show no evidence of Hirschsprung's. That's great, because he won't require surgery, but we still don't know why he can't poop!

Tuckins loads of dust, prayers and well wishes coming to you and your family. As a mom of 2 premies(28 and 26 next month), I have walked in your shoes and know how hard and nerve recking this is for you. Seeing that he already did have surgery before I'm assuming that they ruled out necrotizing enterocolitis not pooping is one of the simptoms for this (both of mine had this). Whatever it is I'm sure the doctors will figure it out soon, and remember preemies are fighters they may be tiny but ohhhhh the resiliance. Try and get some rest when you can xo

You guys are so sweet to keep thinking of us! I'm trying to move up our appointment with the GI doctor so we can start looking into different ideas... My son is doing well, as long as we keep him pooping with suppositories and such. He's still the sweetest little boy ever!

Oh Tunkins I just wanted to say how happy I am that the little man is going #2 on his own. When I read your post it really hit home with me as I have a son who was born a month early (premie by no means but it was still scarey since it was my first child), and all those emotions just hit you so hard. I'm so happy that things are working out and that little man is getting stronger. :appl:
