My 14 year old daughter basically been told after nearly 3 years back and forwards to different hospitals for tests with chronic pain that comes and goes regularly that it is possibly IBS as no tests have shown anything. All the pain originally was on her right side and middle if stomach. February this year they took appendix out as a precaution. Since the operation she has had chronic constipation and been on high doses of laxatives different kinds. Nothing works she was eventually given an enema in April which cleared her as she must of had a blockage. But again for 3 months she's got chronic constipation and chronic pain on her left side which also travels to the middle of stomach. We are under cahms at the moment as this is obviously affecting her emotional and social health, over the last few years she's missed loads of school due to health which also having a knock on effect. She's going into year 10 when goes back to school next week so on top of her health also got a tough couple of school years. She's not been given any medication from Birmingham children's hospital and been discharged. We still see the paediatric doctors at our local hospital who we saw last week. They have not given her anything and not going to see her for 6 months.
I'm really frustrated that I can't help my child and hate seeing her in chronic pain and mentally affecting her. It's also impacting on the rest of the family too.
Could anyone please help don't know what else to do. I've started another food, pain and toilet diary again but have already done one in the past that didn't really help. But incase I'm missing something I'm trying again.
Thanks in advance.
