Poo Question
Sep 26, 2004
... We see a CF doctor every 4 months, but it's always been the same response -- greasy foul smelling.... The recommended dose was 1 1/2 capsules back when he was a couple months old and we're up to 3 MT 4s. It's at our own discretion. I did up it an extra half capsule last week, but he spent two nights pulling up his legs and crying off an on. He's also teething right now so... (3 replies)
Poo Question
Sep 21, 2004
... When DS was first diagnosed, we were told to watch his stools for signs of malabsorption -- greasy, foul smelling stuff and adjust his enzymes accordingly; however, the first few stools when he was on pregestimil were soft and the color of grass. Doctors told us that was good, when we thought it looked awful. We’re just never quite sure if he's is malabsorbing or not --... (3 replies)
... Everyone with Cf is so different but my daughter's stools were as you descibed mucousy and slimey looking.They were also very fatty looking on the diaper. Usually a strange greeny colour with a very offensive smell.

... Sometimes shiny, greasy looking stools? ... (4 replies)
... The way it was explained to me is that most CFers are born with normal lungs, but with increased sticky mucus, infections -- lungs can become affected. DS mainly has gi issues -- if he doesn't have enough digestive enzymes his poo is very loose, sometimes greasy -- when he was on formula and we were trying to get the enzyme issue figured out -- they smelled like feta cheese...

What can I expect?
Apr 24, 2005
... DS was diagnosed at birth cuz of a bowel obstruction. At about 3 months he developed bronchitis 'cuz of a bug he brought home from the hospital. Xrays showed he had air trapping in his lungs. He has some sinus issues. He takes enzymes pancrease mt4s with each meal. He has a poochy tummy 'cuz of his digestion issues -- when he malabsorbs his poo is loose, greasy and... (2 replies)
... It's my understanding that the lungs aren't affected right away. Sometimes a child is more prone to lung infections, but a lot of times it's discovered because of failure to thrive. DS was diagnosed with it because he was born with a bowel obstruction and then went through genetic testing. He had two blood tests that reflected the gene mutation showing CF -- his sweattest...
