I Have A Two Year Old, Since She Was Born She Has Had Problems With Her Lungs And Breathing .she Was In The Nicu For A Week.then Came Home On Oxygen And A Monitor. She Would Stop Breathing And Her Oxygen Would Go Into The 80's. Now At Two She Is Sick Often And Has A Hard Time Getting Her Breath. ( She Will Just Be Sitting There) She Has A Lot Of Mucus, And A Raspy Voice. She's On Meds So Much She Is Having Resistance To Them And Then She Gets A Stagh Infections. She Was Tub When She Was Born To Help Her Breath. They Said Something About Her Left Lung Collapsing. Im Not Sure What To Do, The Ent Said There Is Something Wrong With Her But Her Dr. Gave Up On What Is Wrong. She Not Getting Better. I Dont Know What Else To Do
Please Give Me Any Advice

  • hiI would get her blood work done to test for cystic fibrosis? My son is a carrier as am I and tons of mucuos and problems w/lungs and sinus. Go see an immunologist and get her tested. IF you live in altanta I can recommend someone to you.Good luck and im so sorry your little one has to go through this!
