I would really appreciate your advice. My son is 12 years old and began vomiting about 3.5 weeks ago. He has been hospitalized twice for a total of 8 days for dehydration. He has had an MRI of his brain, an x ray of his stomach and an ultrasound. The MRI showed " non specific activity" that the doctor has said is vasculitis as his platelet counts have been low. The x ray and ultrasound both showed stools suggesting constipation and a slightly enlarged liver.
He is scheduled on Monday for an endoscopy and a colonoscopy. On Wednesday he is scheduled for an upper GI with barium. I have been giving him Miralax 3x per day and still can't get him to have bowel movements more than a few hard small rock like stools. He vomits everything he attempts to eat in spite of zofran and Prevacid.
I am getting extremely frustrated with his pediatrician as she seems to be at a loss as to what is causing all of this to continue as long as it has. She still claims it was just a bad virus.
Have any if you ever heard of something like this? He is so miserable , in pain and obviously extremely hungry. I just don't know what to do!
Thank you in advance!
