Clogged Tear Ducts

Posted Jan 27 2009 6:29pm

Aiden has a clogged tear duct. One that he has had since birth. Sometimes the tear duct opens up on it's own, sometimes it doesn't. Aiden's hasn't.

Today Aiden had an appointment with his ophthalmologist . Aiden needs to undergo a tear duct probing. This requires Aiden to be sedated, elective.

Dr. Cardiologist doesn't want Aiden to be sedated unless absolutely necessary. It is normal for most kids with heart condtions to undergo a sedated echo cardiograph. Aiden has never had one and won't have one.

See the dilemma here.......

Basically, Aiden's clogged tear duct will have to wait until Aiden HAS to be sedated again.
