My 1 yr old son has been in and out of the Dr.s office every month for the last 8 months. He has had continual breathing problems. They did an upper GI and and flourocopy and found that he has a paralyzed right side diaphram and he has acute acid relux. They are also treating him for asthma. We are treating the asthma and acid reflux with medicine. It has been me ntioned that a surgery could fix his diaphragm. In the mean time he is experiancing rapid breathing and difficulty breathing during daily play . There have been times when he passes out when he gets upset. The doctors have yet to say what we can do to fix this problem and in a timely fashion. My hope is that my son can enjoy playing T-ball and any other sport in his future he wants.
Does anyone have any other advice to his conditions.
