Not sure where to put this, but are any of your boys taking erythromycin for gut motility? Carter (6) has been having stomach aches for over 2 months now, we took a trip to the ER for a distended belly and extreme pain in February and xrays showed a lot of gas but nothing else. He was getting over a stomach bug and they said it sometimes takes a little time for everything to get back into rythym again and to give him gas drops. The gas drops helped him on that occasion but since then he's been complaining about his stomach hurting all the time and gas drops dont help. It's usually towards the end of meals or shortly after he finishes eating and he gets a little bloated. He has good BM's and is not constipated. We saw his GI on Friday and they think that he has a problem with gut motility, that his body's not able to move things along as fast as it should. We were told that for most the 'smooth' muscle isn't effected by DMD but it can be a problem for some. Carter was born with an intestinal closure and had major GI surgery as a newborn which adds to his 'risk' of the problem. We'll be in Cincinnati Thursday and will discuss it then, but I'm curious if any other boys are on erythtomycin to keep their GI tracts moving or have problems with 'smooth' muscle function.
