Hi all- please help!!!!
My daughter is 11 (will be 12 soon). She has had pain in her abdomin- right below her navel going across the whole bikini area about 2 inches wide for almost 2 months straight. She has missed a total of 2 weeks of school because of the pain. We've been to er 4 times in 3 weeks, pediatrician in between and a pediatrics gi specialist yesterday... They seem to all say the same thing- it may be constipation. We were prescribed 17 grams of glycolax 2 times a day, 2 enemas a day for 3 days- she also takes castor oil and lots of water. I also massage her belly every night with olive oil, just to try to relax her which seems to help sometimes., she takes warm baths or showers, and heating pads. 3 x-rays, one abdominal external sonogram were also done to rule out cysts. (she is not menstruationg yet). The pain is unbarable for her, she literally doubles over in her bedroom and will cry from when the pain starts (usually by 8'ish pm-until she gets exhausted and falls asleep, 2, 3, 4 in the morning, imagine doing this for almost 2 months straight every day!) the last time we were in the er-it was because she said she was extremly naseaus and then her vision was blurry for over 2 hours. She doesnt have much of an appetite- what kid doesnt want chocolate?She's lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks. The smell of food makes her sick. I cant see her in pain like this, she says she wants to die!!!!.... I dont know what else to do for her. (i dont get much sleep either, listening to her cry herself to sleep)... Please help me. Can constipation be this bad? Is there something the doctor.'s may be missing. I'm desperate! She's desperate!... Please help. Any info or response is appreciated!
I just read your post, wow I feel so sad for your daughter. Poor her such a young age and suffering in pain. Im sorry im not a doc and cant help but I really hope your daughter gets a cure soon and feel better :) maybe can u try see another pediatric gi?
Keep going back to the hospital get second and third opinions. This is crazy that they send you home. How long did they say it would take to subside? How many tests have been done? Do you have a family doctor? Good luck you have a strong daughter. I couldn't imagine how you must feel..
I have pain in my stomach on the upper right side. I had a ultrasound that showed cysts in my kidneys and liver. I did a CT scan that showed cysts in my liver but now my kidneys. Is it normal to have this much pain with just liver cysts
