My daughter had an emergency laproscopic appendectomy at 9 years old on March 2015 after her pediatrician let her walk around with a busted appendix for 2 weeks.
She was in the hospital for ten days due to the infection and even had to be repunctured to drain the cyst the infection had created.
She has been in the er several times due to throwing up daily multiple times at school and having to come home. She has had two ct scans, several blood tests and an x-ray with only constipation showing. Her pediatric-gi specialist told her to take two cap fulls of Miralax every night.
Her throbbing pain still comes and goes every couple of months. She has gained a lot of weight and both her face and stomach are swollen.
Any ideas to help her would be great as she has now seen 6 doctors with no resolution.
