One year old born with CDH. Many procedures thereafter; ECHMO, Trach, Ladd Procedure, Nissen, G-tube. History of reflux and excess gas which continued after Nissen. Recently the G-tube went to a GJ-tube. Reflux continued. Formula switched to Progestimil a few days ago and some improvement has been noticed. Retching and reflux has reduced but still present. Abdominal distention periodically present. Prior constipation but isn't present with GJ-tube. The goal has been to treat for excess gas but thus far no diagnosis for the cause of the excess gas. Could this be a motility disorder, maybe a pseudo obstruction?
