Hi my 5 year old has had intermittent pain in his bum for 2 years. A few weeks ago my poor boy was in so much pain he couldnt walk so i checked him and found a massive lump near his anus. At the hospital they took him down to surgery where they found a large abscess and a fistula... they cleaned and drained the abscess and fitted a seton with a view to operate in a few months. They took bloods and biopsies and mentioned chrones to us... although they were not worried as he is so young.
3 weeks later i call for biopsy results and the surgeon still hasnt looked at them. The biopsies were inconclusive but showed 'chronic inflammation'
The consultant still has not contacted me about this. His bloods were pretty normal apart from mild anemia and inflammation markers were up (due to abscess?)
Would an abscess or fistula show as chronic inflammation? Or is there something else going on? It seems highly probable to me that he has this but docs seem unconcerned due to his age. Its so rare apparently. Im out of my mind, its been 3 weeks plus the 2 years on top of chasing. I just want to know whats up with my boy.
Sorry for rambling lol x
