If NEC reoccurs, what are the chances of survival?
My son was diagnosed with NEC 2 weeks after he was born (at 31 weeks).  They treated him (antibiotics, no surgery) and after total of 6 weeks he was discharged.  After 2 weeks of being at home we noticed blood in his stool.  We took him to the hospital and he was diagnosed with NEC again.  He was on antibiotics for about 1.5 weeks.  The doctors said he does not have to have a surgery at this time.  They did a barium study and it came back ok.  I'm still worried because he's not passing any stool yet and they started him on breast milk 2 days ago.  What are the chances that he may get it again?  At what point will his chances of getting it again are much lower?
