My son Liam is 16 months old and just had open heart surgery 1 week ago. He is so traumatized by everything that has happened we can't give him pain meds with out him going nuclear. And under so circumstance will he let me lift up, take off, or touch his shirt. It has gotten so bad he has been wearing the same shirt for 2 days because he screams if I try to take it off him. ( He is also very strong) It's a huge struggle to change his diaper every day because I have to touch his belly or lift his shirt. I'm breaking down and crying most of the time. My innocent little boy is so scared someone will hurt him if he takes his shirt off. Please any suggestions to help move past this?
