  • Our son, Johnny, RTS 19 years old, is having outpatient surgery to remove all four wisdom teeth on March 22, 2013.
    He handles anesthesia and surgery well, but it is extremely difficult to find a vein for IV or drawing blood. Dehydration makes the issue worst. Based on prior surgeries, doctors have found it works best to slightly sedated before placing the IV and to use the smallest needle possible.
    Can you offer any case examples, insights, or resources that might help this procedure be less traumatic?
    Any information you can provide for post surgery pain management will also be most helpful.
    The dentist will not sedate prior to placing IV. He said it should all be better after a week…endure.
    Thank you for any advice!

    • my brother is54 years old and still today will clench his face and squeeze his eyes tightly shut when getting blood drawn. I never thought it could be excessively painful until I read your post. you can imagine I fell terrible beause the plobatomist techs usually smile and laugh away his”cute response”.

  • Is this website still active? Nothing has been posted in the current year 2015. I tried emailing Janet to be put on the emailing list and the email address was rejected.

    My 3 year old son was just diagnosed with RTS and I would like to connect with families, especially anyone who’s child has the EP300 gene.


  • My son is 41yrs old and refuses to go to the Doctor or Dental Office. He will not get out of the car if I take him for an appointment. Due to not allowing labs to be done. We have lost our 3rd Physician since he want allow any treatment. He has a mouth full of bad teeth and needs extractions. My question is has anyone with RTS had dentures and if so how is that working out?
