A Challenging case of NEC with8 months of PICU stay

At 2 month age , he was admitted a case of NEC with intestinal gangrene and obstruction…
First operated in MAX Shalimar bagh ( twice ) and then transferred to BLK-MAX for further management …
Operated again and developed short bowel syndrome due to major bowel resection…
Had a stormy post op course but pulled through..we thought the worst is over …and the child needed time to recuperate …
Bowel remodeling takes time and we told the family it will take him months to adjust …
Progressed slowly and a prolonged stay interspersed with numerous feeding issues ….poor weight gain… feeding had to slowly increase at snails pace…
But perseverance and will of the parents and hard work by our amazing Dr Prashant and Dr Rachna with their never give up attitude …moved mountains and child came out a winner and discharged at age of 10 months.
