When my son William was 6 months old he was diagnosed with dysphagia.
In August of this year, Dr. Albert put tubes in his ears and removed his adenoids. Dr. Albert was hoping that removing the adenoids would help with the dysphagia. Well, it made it worse.
They did another cookie swallow test and he failed so badly we couldn’t leave the hospital. Pediatrician Joel Davidson directly admitted him.
They tried putting NG tubes in him several times. He pulled it out at least 5 times. Then it was decided that Dr. Pittinger would place a peg tube. William was in the hospital for 8 days.
The staff took excellent care of him and me too.
He is adjusting to the tube feeding now. We are working with speech therapy and a dietitian. The staff is wonderful!
