Hi Chelsey. You must be a wreck with all the stress you are under with your newborn. I am not a nurse, but I do know that the yellow is bile, meaning that the food hasn't been digested. But with Short Gut Syndrome, food doesn't get digested as well as it should. There are many nurses on board here who can probably answer this question better than I can. Best wishes to you and your baby.
Chelsey-I'm adding you as a friend so you can send me a private question. I am a dietitian, and currently working with two SBS pt's. rather then post everything here, go to my page and ill give you all the info I know. I've had to educate myself and do hours of research as SBS is rare, but I'm seeing so much of it and hope I can put your mind at ease. Best. (Also I can email you a lot of nutrition and medical info, not on here but after we talk privately if you'd like that info). My very best to you!
