infant nightmares and anxiety

My 4 month old son just had an invasive procedure done and will have another one in a few days, then surgery in a week and a half. He has been waking up screaming after he had the first procedure done. Is there anything I can give him to ease his mind and help him to not be scared? Also what should I give him for the surgery to help calm him?
Thank you

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
What procedure was done and what are his health issues.

The procedure was a kidney scan where they had to put in an IV and a catheter, but they messed up the IV the first time. He was strapped down to a table so he couldn't move and the test lasted 2 hours. He screamed for about an hour during this test and would not be called down by me or his dad.

The test on Tuesday will also require another IV and catheter but it is only a 45 minute test.

Then his surgery will be on his ureters because his urine is being blocked so they will cut out the bad part and reattach it. To do this they will make a cut on his back under his ribs and go in through there. They will also do a kidney biopsy and put a Stent in his ureter. Also he will be needing a catheter for this and an IV. Then he will be staying overnight in the hospital.

And his health issues are his kidneys and ureters. They are not emptying his bladder and urine correctly so he has a backup of fluid in his kidneys

If you are in the usa, I suggest you go online to either Mary Aspinwall,
a master homeopath in Santa Barbara, or to Lia Bello a Nurse practitioner
homeopath in New Mexico. They will give you advice by phone for$50
for acute pain like this and it would be a good idea to have a
professional take the childs case and advise you as you go along here.

At 4 months he is probably screaming due to some type of pain from
the procedure not fright. Also at this age and on up when there
are procedures that cause pain the child processes this as being
in danger and it re-traumatizes them again when they see doctors or
have medical procedures in the future.

You need ongoing professional help with this.

If you can get in touch with a professional homeopath, great.

Still give him Arnica 30c 2-3 times a day after the procedure. It will work for both pysical & emotional trauma.

Dissolve one pill of remedy in half glass boiled, cooled water and give one tea spoon as dose.

I am not aware of the extent & cause of his urine blockage but it might have benefited from homeopathic treatment.
