Common Questions and Answers about Rsv how long does it last


593530 tn?1263851557 How long it took to get rid of virus? my daugter is 4 weeks old and she got RSV. She was hospitalized for 3 days and was being monitored for her oxygen levels. She is still coughing a lot and its hard to watch her. Doc said it can take upto a month or 2 to fully recover.
Avatar n tn He is listless and we are worried, how long can a babies breathing and heart rate work this hard before he goes into distress. The nursing staff think we are over reacting and the pediatrician send a resident in who didn't even read the babies blood work, said he did, but this is his third day of admission and no blood work drawn. We are getting scared, what can we ask next? They have not done blood gases, just rsv swab and cxray on admission. Help us!
Avatar f tn Has your doctor tested for RSV? I believe it's a mucus test and it takes a couple days to get results. It doesn't hurt to get a second opinion.
Avatar n tn I have read that asthma like you said is a long term effects. I have also read that they are more likely to get it again. Not sure if it is accurate or not. Good luck and if you need anything message me.
162948 tn?1205256292 My question is if that is normal once it has been removed and how long does it last. I had it in for over a year but wanted it removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
Avatar f tn Sure the first two and last two months were emotional hell for me and medically/understandably so (it is for everyone) but the rest of the months? PERFECTION. I was happy, normal, feeling good, had a baseline, you know? Before pregnancy and now 2 years later? Depression/anxiety/anger--all over the place depending on my cycle. Like today? Two days into my period?
287246 tn?1318573663 I can't believe she is already going to be 4 months old!! Geez, where does the time go??? Anyhow, I was just curious how your little ones are sleeping these days. Mary slept for up to 8 hours straight for a few nights when she was about 8 or 9 weeks old, but that didn't last long. She got congested in her nose and I always hear they go through a growth spurt at about 3 months old and need to feed a bit more often again. Then she got sick on top of that.
Avatar f tn He's been on it since he was 2 weeks old. His dr is actually going to let him outgrow his dose and see how it goes. Does your DS have problems during the day, or just at night? Has his dose been upped lately?
Avatar f tn I've posted this before but I will post it again. You mention "The No-Cry Sleep Solution". I'm wondering if you've read this passage...... "He awakes in a mindless terror of the silence, the motionless. He screams. He is afire from head to foot, with want, with desire, with intolerable impatience. He gasps for breath and screams until his head if filled and throbbing with the sound. He screams until his chest aches, his throat is sore.
220217 tn?1209683277 Boy how time flies. It doesn't seem like it's been that long at all - I feel like I was just pregnant yesterday. That's sad - I liked being fat and pregnant, but I also enjoy my boys being here to hold. Brodie's RSV has appeared to have subsided so the doctor is sending both boys for their first RSV vaccination tomorrow. Thank god for insurance as each vaccine is $3,500 and they each get 3 - 3 months in a row. WOW - I want to work for that company. Anybody else get this vaccine?
377493 tn?1356505749 I was very motivated to get off of it as Ryder's pediatrician didn't want me nursing on it, so I thought it best not to get pregnant on it, and we are ttc. So, working with my Dr. I have slowly stopped using it. I have a whole bunch of tools I now use to control it instead. Yes, the panic attacks still come and I still have many many anxious moments. But I feel I have much better control over it.
Avatar f tn 2 days ago my 3 month old baby started eating a lot less than he used to. He is eating now 2 to 3 oz every 2 to 3 hours. Is very hard to put him on a schedule because he has been sick. Acid reflux, urinary reflux, laringomalacia, bronchiolitis and a UTI. He was given prevacid and a nebulizer with albuterol. He was spitting up a lot with a bad smell (like vomit), he did vomit a couple of times but that was (assuming) the amoxiciline given at the hospital for the UTI.
377493 tn?1356505749 C due to incomplete miscarriage. Loss #6 for me, and while it was easier then before Ryder, it was still tough. Dec. Day after Christmas, Ryder gets an ear infection. He then gets a nasty cold, lasting 2 weeks. Jan. Surgery for me. Glad it's over, but darned if it wasn't incredibly painful. Still taking painkillers on occasion although it's much better. Jan. Ryder gets the nastiest bug he has had to date. 11 days unable to keep down solids.
Avatar m tn I searched the HepC boards for any mention of it and don't see any comments. Does anyone know if it's okay to take? I've had chronic HepC for 33 years now, genotype 1b, Stage 2, Grade 3 or Stage 3, Grade 2, failed treatment in '98, 2000, and '05. I would think a colon cleanse would be a good idea, which one of these products is for. Another is an anti-oxidant. I have such terrible fatigue and memory loss, and can't get rid of 20 of the pounds I gained last year when I quit smoking.
Avatar n tn As they are able to stand up and not be in a lying down position all day it does get better. Hang in there I know how rough it can be.
Avatar f tn Whereas ours do not. Can cuffing and atelectasis cause long term damage? How long does it take for this to clear up? What causes scar tissue? Is it normal to have pneumonia as frequently as he does? I do own a pulse oximeter, which I use to closely monitor his o2 (normally he is 96 or above, several times a week he does drop to 91-95), usually in addition to other symtpoms of clamminess, shortness of breath, frequent/persistant coughing. He is from a pet free, smoke free home.
544292 tn?1268886268 So happy that you found us here. When I started journaling a long time ago, I could barely find anyone to help me. Not that I am happy that there's so many of us. But you know what I mean. It is easier if you have friends. Make yourself Comfy!
Avatar f tn i got off work and picked up my son from my in laws my dh was baby sitting him there ah how i hate my inlaws and he look worst then ever today so sad his eyes are soo watery. i cant sleep another question does anyone read old post it is so funny when i read old post like when i first got pregnant or when i had my miscarriage it just shows how much we ladies on here helped eachother esp. the ones who been on here since forever!
254689 tn?1251183640 I can't even express how tired I am today as the baby got very little sleep which has happened that past few days. Tonight was awful as we couldn't get him comfortable. We ended up swaddling him in this ginormous blanket and walked, walked and walked him until my back felt broken. I also learned today that dh has to go out of town for a few days then end of this month/first of June. I'll virtually have no help as the girls are also out of town & so are grandparents.
192918 tn?1199454779 ) They tested her for RSV last night but it was negative. She also had the stomach bug last week and now this. So they are very similar. Her doctor put her on oral steroids for 5 days. Once that is finished, then she'll be on pulmicort every night and Singulair once a day until April. Then we'll re-evaluate and see if she needs to continue that. I feel better that you're on a similar med schedule. thanks for the info!
172826 tn?1423426556 hence why I put the playpen in the living room and see how he does with far its been decent..and hopefully i can put him back in his bed soon...) or C) be in a deep sleep that I won't hear him.. I have heard the slightest movements being 2 rooms away so i guess its a good thing..I get my full rest and he will wake me up if need be... As wierd as this might sound I dont know what nebbing means.. I'm french so some words i suppose aren't really in my dictionary lol...
15480 tn?1302533402 We had a 'roundabout'...loved it but our kids are quite big. Long, Tall so they out grow their seats quickly. If I did it again, I'd go with the Britax Decathalon...It has a higher weight/height rating I believe. 9 months and 20 lbs growing out of the infant carrier???/ LOL I wish. My new guy is 29 inches long at 4 mos and out of his infant carrier already. I think he is about 18 lbs.
Avatar n tn -Elevated biliruben for 5 weeks at birth -RSV and double pneumonia at 6wks -ongoing colds and pneumonias (no less than annual) and strep rashes -RSV at age 2 again requiring hospitalization -Age 2-4 spontaneous vomitting on about a 30 day cycle. The older she got the more violent, sometimes containing blood. -She has had lymes disease 3 separate times from age 4-10 -She has had shingles twice in the last two years. - In the past year, cyclical nausea reappearring.
163557 tn?1244116542 in the PICU.. for RSV! He gets his synagis every month, so it really is a pretty mild case of it. They are just monitoring him just in case. I think he'll be able to come back home today. The nurse yesterday said she's never seen an RSV kid that healthy. He barely even has anything for them to suction out of him. And he hasn't required oxygen or anything. Hopefully he already hit his peak (which is supposed to be between days 3 and 5).
Avatar n tn He also has albuterol inhaler and Flonase. However, it does not work sometime like the last 2 nights. The flonase really made it worst so I stop. He has this about a year off and on, but worse when the weather change.I have air filter and huminifier at home as well. Myself, I started having sinus issue only recently about 2-3 years. I have post nasal drop 2-3x per week. Sometime mild and sometime very bad.
Avatar n tn I have to do 5 drops to get the correct amount. Any suggestions on how to get him to swallow it? It took both DH and myself to give it to him last night and we had to hold his mouth shut like you do when you give puppies medicine. My mom suggested I mix it with bananas. Do you think that will work?
Avatar n tn I will make sure to follow up. Do you think its usual that she has it again though being she had it last year? How long should I keep her indoors and out of preschool? She still has her severe cough but her 5 day xythromas medicine last day of medicine dosage is today?
142722 tn?1281537216 Doesn't always come up and out, sometimes they swallow it back down but it still hurts. It is scary, mine does it too, he would start to choke too, and began to turn purple. We are seeing a pulmonologist next week though. The Dr. thinks his breathing is bad partly from the severity of his acid reflux. I think some of it is also due to the RSV at an early age and he also had issues when he was born and had to be deep suctioned a few times at the hospital.
172826 tn?1423426556 We discussed the nebulizer and he said due to not having any insurance it would cost too much money for the meds..which frankly i dont care how much i have to pay as long as my baby is able to get better... i keep his pump close by at all times...i fear that i'm going to wake up and my baby wont be breathing anymore... the liquid he his coughing up is mucous because he is so mucous filled. There isnt much he can do about it...just to give him his pump as needed...every 4 hours but no less...
