Help! Wanting answers for my 4 year old son!
My son has been having Bowel/Intestinal problems for approx. 11 month and counting now. Aug 2001 my son had severe distended abdomen and was in alot of pain. We took him to emerg. and there he vimited alot of green vile smelling fluid they took x-rays and admitted him and said he possibly had an evolving blockage and sent him home nest day. Every day since he bloats up and has diarreah 3-4- times a day, alot of mucas and it floats and sometimes has pain in his upper groin area low abdomen. He tires very easily and complains about his arms and legs hurting he weighs 34-35 lbs and is not gaining he is very skinny below the 50 % according to his growth chart. Just recently he has been having diarreah for 1-2 weeks daily and then no b/m's for 2-3 days and then one very large b/m and then the cycle begins again. We have had x-rays, ultrasounds, upper GI, blood work, stool tests, Celiac Test and Sweat Chloride. Most results have come back nothing significant other than: appedix very prominant and in centre of abdomen, they could not veiw pancreas too much gasses, Ferritin slightly high, creatine low, ESR high @ 18 s/b 10-13 for his age, Sweat Chloride @ 53 being retested on 26th Docs think this is high may have CF, same doc thinks he is just constipated and suggested mineral oil. Nothing has changed. Very exhausted, want my baby fixed or just to know whats going on to help him, any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Sorry so long.
