I have been being told diferent things by each specialist and the pediatritian.my 11 m/o was born with a heart murmur, has had constant smelly, mucusy constipation for 10 months, he's on 2 laxatives, a special formula & supositories; nothing works. His 9 month check up, his pedi noticed his head had grown 2x as fast as his body, that coupled with developmental delays had the pediatritain thinking he had a problem in his brain. He recieved an MRI and they found a small amount of fluid so they want to see if it clears up on its own. He's come down with RSV 3 times in 2 months. Iam trying to find out what could be causeing this. Iam curious, could the murmer be the cause or just another symptom?View Thread
