I need help, my daugther has been in hospital because of very much mucus loss in her stool , most times just allmost clear coloured mucus whitout real stool. Other days she had a little diarea like stool, some thicker.

The doctors could not find out what s the cause of the mucus loss. They have found a blastocystis hominis infection and she had flagyl for it. I could a food advice to give my daugther less sugar and more fat. that helped, after a few weeks she had normal stool (even better than before she got the mucus, because she has had all her life 4 years, stool problems) Know she is just fine.

But the doctors want stop , they say that mucus loss cant be a sypmtom for this blastocyst infection. They dont believe that there was really mucus loss from my daugther but think I did something in a jar to look like she was ill. Know they have contacted the child services (dont know how its called in english) with the message I did something to get attention for myself.

I am lucky that my daugther has had the problems also at school, friends etc. more people than me saw that she really lost the mucus herself. Even when I was not there. I am lucky that my own fysision stands behind me, but I am still scared, how can a docter even think about something so bad about me. What did I do to made here think that ??

I did not care that they did not have the answer what the mucus caused, I just was happy that is has been solved. But know I think i need to find out what the mucus was etc. But my daugther is know very well and healthy (lucky !!!) and the problems are gone, so I dont know how, but has some one a idea what the mucus was etc.

Does someone know if a blastocystis hominis infection can cause a lott of mucus loss??? And when it can, how long after the infection is treadet (flagyl) before the symptoms go away. (it took about 1,5 month before my daugther got better, her stool was allready better, but it took a little more time before the mucus tottaly disappeared.

greetings Mirthe

  • thanks for your messages, its over her allready 1 past midnight and i ve been crying for the last hours. Not knowing what to do anymore.my daughter is healthy after they treated her, so i dont think she needs any testing anymore.So I dont know what the problem is that the doctors have . My daughter has had problems since birth, I have been concerned because they did not know what she had, but I knew all the time that it was not live treathening or something, she has seen the docters a lot, I know, I wished it was never nescecarry. My daugther has got her toncils out, after a year or something my she got a trought infection and my house docter (i dont know how to call in english ) said her townsels grew back, but later in hospital they said that was not true, but does that make me or my docter a liar ?What ever they say, they are forgetting that they really solved the problem, maybe without knowing what she has had, but all the problems are gone for over 1,5 month know. We went on a 3 week holiday with friends, we were just being happy together, and then one docter is making problems without knowing my daughter is just fine . All the people around us know and see us , at school, friends , babysitter etc they all saw my daugthers problems and they all saw them disappear after she was treathed. But why cant the docter see that ? They say i am a danger to my child , what can i say ? I feel like I cant do anything , everything will look like i need attention or something. I just can hope that school, my house docter, every body just tell what they know and then this bad dream will dissappear. I dont have anything to hide, so i try to stay calm and wait while others make dessisions. when they believe that I am a danger to my children they need to take them to a save place, it will brake my heart and my childrens hearts. I hope they will see and find out that i am nothing but a loving mother, maybe sometimes a little overconcerned, but i think and believe that i am not any way different then every parent whos loving her children and giving them the best lifes possible. My daugthers will go to school again, they will play with there friends, they dont know whats happening , i dont know if and how I should /could tell theme something that i self even cant handle.tomorrow i will go and seek psychologic help for myself, i cant handle this all by myself.

  • how can a docter even think about something so bad about me. What did I do to made here think that ?? I sympathize.. there are many horror stories out there. I too was once blamed wrongly by medical personal. My child when she was a baby, haemorrhaged and died (should of been given a blood transfusion but the hospital did not believe for a week, until they took tests just before she left hospital, about how much blood she'd lost) .. and had to be resusitated. The hospital called the police and tried to stop me from seeing her. It took 15 yrs for a medical professional to look and work out she was born was just a few skin layers covering vessels inside her nose (they are now talking about skin graft there due to the risk of severe bleeding). ..................... another i know who has an illness (chronic fatigue syndrome).. her doctors didnt believe she was ill.. and had her two children taken away. .............. i suggest you look for a lawyer.
