My son is 12 he had an Appendectomy 4 weeks ago. Surgeon said it was acute appendicitis with no perforation. I expected him to be better in a least a week! CT Scans, X-Rays, Blood Tests, and Stool Samples have all come back normal. He saw a GI doctor who I think already had his mind made up before we saw him since all his tests have come back normal. He said my son has Chronic Functional Pain, which in my opinion means "We don't know what's wrong, so we will catorgrize him in this catagory). His pain he says consistent of pain by all three Inscions he describes them as a sharp sharp pain. He also says it feel like his intestines are twisting and turn and feel like they are being pulled apart. He also complain of his stomach hurts severely minutes after he eats, he's describe his intestines feel as though they are flip flopping, he can't sit up or sit down without being in pain, he can hardly walk, he I severely nauseas all the time(zofran seems to have little effect) he won't eat, he's lost 13 lbs. I'm at a loss as what to do. He will be seeing a Naturopath in a few days. He also will be having an EndoScope done but the GI Doc says he's 95% sure he won't find anything. I've been giving him good Probiotics, Fish Oil, fermented foods like sauerkraut, pepermint tea. He has a prescribed Med suppose to help with the cramping of the GI track (it doesn't help). Oh and the GI Doc prescribed him an Antidepressent that is suppose to help with the GI track and get it back on track. The GI doc said he sees these symptoms all the time after abdominal surgeries. Anyone else's have a child with these symptoms and if so what did you do????
