I followed up both by phone and email when we got here and I hadn't yet heard from the GI office. I did finally get a call back and we're set to go in there tomorrow early afternoon.
I've changed treatment, and I'm not doing the silver nitrate anymore. It was hurting her, even though they told me that the growth shouldn't have feeling. She was screaming the last two times I applied it, and for those of you that know her, she doesn't cry. She has a hugely high pain tolerance, and can go days without crying at all. So for her to scream like that was sign enough for me that we weren't continuing that treatment. I was turned on to an alternative treatment, and while I was checking it out, I found another one that had rave reviews by parents on several G-tube sites. So I'm now using a nystatin/triamcinolone cream, which we happened to have in the house from a previous prescription for us. It has helped some (more than the silver nitrate ever did), it doesn't hurt her, the growth of the granuloma has seemed to stop, and I think it is starting to decrease a little. I'm still going to have her seen, because I'd prefer they remove this growth and cauterize it to be done with it. Plus, it's changed so fast, there's no telling what it might do between today and tomorrow.
Thanks for your prayers. The good part is that she doesn't seem bothered by this, now that the silver nitrate is out of the picture. I'm very pleased about that.
Braska will be up to posting more cute pics of herself soon, but in the meantime, take the time to check out this story.
