Hi everyone. I am a mother of a 15 year old boy. He has been on and off sick since August and with stomach pain badly since November. We have had a lot of tests, blood work, xrays, ultrasound, urine and stool samples taken and all come back normal. We have cut back on dairy and he drinks almond milk instead of cow's milk. Just got the blood work and xrays results from the pediatric gastroenterologist, (after waiting 2 weeks for results), everything normal.
He gets very bad lower intestinal pain with bad diarrhea. The pain and diarrhea lasts 3-4 days and then goes away and then comes back 4 weeks later and starts all over again. First they thought it was his appendix, then celiac disease, then his gall bladder. This is the second time this month he has had the pain and last time it lasted longer then 3-4 days. Had to wait 3 months to see a specialist and then all they want him to do is drink laxatives every day till his follow up visit in June. He ran more bloodwork and 2 more xrays.
I don't know what to do for his pain, i can't take it away or make it better. He has missed so much school because of this. This year I am going to try to grow a garden. Last time I grew a garden only the deer were able to eat anything. I bought 6 pullets, I hope they are all pullets, for fresh eggs. Hoping that eating fresh fruit, veggies and eggs might help. Maybe its a chemical in the food that is hurting him. I don't know.
Thanks for listening to me. I am so stressed out about not being able to help my son feel better. Has anyone else had similar symptoms or gone through this?
