My daughter has been battling stomach problems for years. A couple of years ago she was diagnosed with stomach ulcers and acid reflux after an endoscopy. She was given medications, and things were rocky there for awhile. She was still battling nausea and vomiting with intermittent stomach pain. Then things seemed to have cleared up. She had a colonoscopy this past August, plus another endoscopy. The endoscopy showed her ulcers have healed. During the colonoscopy they found a pre cancerous tumor which they removed. Her gastroenterologist says these types of tumors often grow back and turn into cancer. difficult child will now be having colonoscopies every three years for the rest of her life. So anyway, in the last two weeks difficult child has suddenly developed new symptoms. She has had bad diahrrea for several times a day, along with stomach cramping and nausea. One night she even had blood. I took her to the pediatrician earlier this week, after things hadn't cleared up after giving her Immodium AD. Her doctor is very concerned, and wants a stool sample. He thinks it could be some type of infection and really pushed hard for her to give a stool sample. difficult child says it's gross and she is absolutely, 100 percent refusing to comply. Meanwhile, she has missed 5 days of school and she continues to battle these symptoms. Her abdomen was also very tender to the touch when the doctor pushed on it, so he is sending her to the lab for an ultrasound next Friday to check her gallbladder. Since she is overweight, she is at risk for gallbladder disease. Meanwhile, we also saw her gastroenterologist to get her input. She agrees with the pediatrician, and is demanding a stool sample from my daughter. She also wants to run a test where they inject difficult child with dye and look at her intestines. I really hope we get some answers with these tests. In the meantime, we are ALL on my daughter's case for that darned stool sample that she absolutely won't give! Please keep us in prayer.
