The Tailbone Of A Child With Down Syndrome Feels Crooked?
My child was born as a Down Syndrome baby. At the age of 3 months my child was able to lie on his stomach … now my child is 6 months old … from the beginning of birth my child was not able to be treated in the Nicu room … until last week my child was still undergoing therapy vapor. r n Here I want to ask 2 questions. The first is the problem of immunization … until now my child has never had any immunizations at all. We are a family that is completely deprived. From the age of my child 2 months. but none of the midwives wanted to immunize my child. because of the history of such ds. last week when my child was on steam therapy. I tried to ask a general practitioner. The question is that children with this condition are rarely immunized. especially since my child is 6 months old. . is true, children with ds conditions usually do not immunize. still is there a risk of these effects. because honestly, if immunization has to be a pediatrician, and we are very difficult for the cost .. r nSecond … I told you above. At the time my child was 3 months old, he was already lying on his stomach even though it was still heavy to lift his head. Now my child is 6 months old. He is able to lie on his stomach properly and has been able to lift his head. But after a few days I noticed someone It’s strange with my child. In general, babies aged 6 months usually if they are carried a little upright they will be able to lift their heads upright too. But my child is carried a slightly upright position or standing upright, so his neck bones cannot compensate for body weight or not can support. then if I try to stand up … my legs are really weak … and immediately fall down even though I hold them … then if I can just sit on my body, my head and body are limp … the seat looks like a hunchback … take a shower..i am a bit strange..my son’s tail bone is just right at the top of the pelvis, why is it a little bent n a bit protruding, that’s why. Why is it that my child has paralysis. or what, because the muscles “are on limp. Or is it that a child with this condition has a poor motoric system so that his growth is slow … please explain for these two problems.
From the information you have conveyed, a history of Down's syndrome has implications for various possible complaints that may be encountered in children during their growth and development, including complaints of the respiratory tract, visual disturbances, cognitive abilities, motor skills, or communication. However, all these things are not an obstacle for parents and children to continue to receive the same basic health services, such as immunization services.
Thus, with the risk of respiratory problems and health problems in Down syndrome patients, basic immunization can still be given according to the immunization schedule that should be. So you can get this immunization service at the health center or hospital designated for your child. Therefore, you do not need to pay special costs for basic immunization which is a government program. In addition, Down syndrome is not a contra indication for immunization.
If you have a BPJS, you can use the BPJS service for this process, or if you do not have a BPJS, you can arrange health social security services for your child and family according to existing regulations.
Discuss with the local RT / RW officials or local Puskesmas to get health social security services and immunization services for your child.
Regarding motor skills, you should still provide muscle strength training for your child, so that motor skills are not yet as optimal as babies of his age. Therefore, by getting national health insurance, your child can still get an examination and evaluation by a pediatrician.
That is the information we can convey, also read immunization.
