    Dear all,

    My baby was born at 30 weeks and 2 days which is fewer than 37 weeks' gestational age.
    He has undergone an operation to remove 8 cm of small intestine due to thicker intestinal fluid , causing blockage.
    How his swelling belly goes away but the doctor said his inflamation index (serum crp level ) is still high m195 sth.
    Besides, the blood platlet levels drop slow each time and after giving blood platlets to the baby .Other checks shows normal results , x-ray scan and CT scan didn't any abnormalities with baby's stomach. The baby is given 6ml x 8 meals per day of breast-milk and there are normal expulsion of feces at the temporary stoma opening .

    What could be the causes of this?

    Best Regards
