Contact Sports after KD

Post by CTkd » Tue Feb 23, 2016 11:47 am

My son was diagnosed at about 3 months of age, he is turning 7 next month. He did have aneurysms after the ivig treatment and is and has been on a daily aspirin regiment, we are being told that he will need to go through stress testing once he turns 12 to make sure he can participate in contact sports. My son is crazy about sports, he literally loves all sports he has played, and so my wife and I have allowed him to play any sport he chooses knowing that one day he may not be allowed to play even if that will be heartbreaking since he has already started playing.
My question is if he is playing hockey, soccer, baseball, lacrosse etc isn't that a stress test in and of itself?
