Im wondering about double chromosomes in the 8th and 16th

Posted by mommaof3

My son has recently been founded to have a double of the 8th and 16th chromosome...We haven't been to our apt. yet but I do know that the 8th chromosome has some link to Adhd and we've had several diagnosis' for him from Adhd to Autism and a few others under the mental retardation category.  I'm just worried because the dr. said over the phone that both me and my ex-husband will need to be tested to see which one of us carries the gene Colby carries (our son) , and Im also worried because the dr. said it's something he hasn't yet seen in his professional career nor that he's heard of it.  The 8th and 16th chromosome has been found to have a double of from the way I understood.
