My 13 year old daughter has suffered from severe abdominal pain for 9 months now. This pain is in a similar spot to an appendix and permanent but approximately 2 times a week it is debilitating for her.
She has seen multiple specialist and have Blood tests, X-rays, MRIs and laparoscopy to find her problem. Whilst having her laparoscopy 6 months ago they removed her appendix and found adhesions on her small intestine which they are unsure about.
Her eating, weight and energy levels have decreased, her bloody pressure drops when it is bad. she sometimes faints and vomits from the pain and she has spent many times in hospital. She is living on pain killers, tried eliminating foods, been on multiple antibiotics, had ovaries etc checked andand her next step is a gastroscopy and colonoscopy (I think this is what they are called) to check for crohns and other diseases.
While her stools are ok and regular I am wondering if anybody has had similar as I find her intestine adhesions very rare for her age.
Any help would be appreciated as my poor girl is getting so upset and withdrawn from missing so much from her teen life
