Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Greetings,Thank you for your question. I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.Long continued diarrhea can take a long time to recover.It might have started as viral or bacterial infection, after adequate treatment infection gets cured.If the diarrhea continued for a long time, intestinal villi are destroyed or thinned out.It can take time to heal or regrow.During this time food may not not be tolerated.So, the doctor tried TPN to give rest to the intestine.Now they are trying to introduce oral feed gradually.I understand your anxiety.It can take time to resolve.
Do not worry.
I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating. Wish his healthy life and early recovery.Regards.
