My wife traveled to Nicaragua for a medical mission in March of 2011. About 8 weeks after returning home she began to have serious stomach cramping. The cramps lasted a day or two and went away. Over the last year the cramps come and go with no pattern. Now she gets constipated. She had her blood work done in late January, and everything was in the normal range. This included the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. Her CBC and white blood cell count were all in the normal range. She has had an upper gi endoscope and everything was ok. She just recently had a ct scan which showed a 3.5 cm lesion on the liver that was hyperdense and a single swollen lymph node posterior to the pancreas. No mass was found in the pancreas, lower lungs, or kidneys, gallbladder, or spleen. Her gastoenterologist does not seem concerned about the liver lesion, but is worried about the single Lymph node. We still have no answers. Please help.
A year ago my daughter had some infections and flu, her stomach has never been the same shes been in so much pain i thought she was dying, after having many tests at childrens ive come to learn that some peoples bowels become spastic after the flu and cant correct themselves, since then she is always in pain after eating, it cant be cured says the doc but the best way i have found in the last year of her pain i can help you with a probiotic in am (she only gets 1/4 since she is little) fish oil but the biggest is no gluten and no cheese or milk products this really helps the spastic bowel pain. my poor little nine year old has been through so much pain but i want to keep posting so i can help other children/people from going through what she has been through and what she is going through. she is still in alow of pain but not as much as when it first started. gluten free is so hard but worth it! dairy and gluten cause swelling and inflamation which add to the pain. there are lots of great stores now that have lots of gluten free options and ps meat/potatoes/corn and anything white is bad and painful, whats good on her belly gf cereal with dairy free milk/eggs/oatmeal/salads chopped very well with little it of chicken fruit and cooked veggies. good luck
