I guess i should start at the beginning... When my son was born he ended up back in the hospital 2 weeks after he was born i still don't know what happened. As he got a little older he would get sick so of course I took him to the ER and was told that he had the flu, that was only 1 time though, all the other times he had double ear infections and sinus infections. well in 2006 I took him to the ER and they were trying to tell me that my son had the flu, they could see he was doubled over in pain and after i jumped all over these dumb ass doctors they started doing they're job. After they got my sons vomitting and pain under control they did a CT scan it showed that he had a partial obstruction, but I didn't get the results of that till a week later. His pediatrician had referred him to a surgeon and told me to call to get the appt. well i called this surgeon and she told me that i had to drive an hour to go to the hospital. I went to this hospital they did all the same tests and said theres nothing wrong, treating me like i'm stupid. Well in 2007 he had another attack i took him back to the hospital where i live they did another CT scan and he had the partial obstruction again, the same thing in 2008. Well last year he had another attack and had another ct scan and it showed the same thing he ended up in the hospital at Easter cause the pain had gotten so bad, that his heart rate was high and his blood pressure was very high. We finally go and see a Gi specialist for kids and had alot of tests. Well this dr. did blood work and xrays well got the results and my son has a fatty liver, his liver enzymes were elevated a little but no hepatitis. He had a colonoscopy done and the dr couldn't get the scope into his small intestine. He also had him swallow a pill where it was taking pictures as it was traveling through the digestive, then he had the tube going down his throat and said his stomach was full so we did the gastric emptying study and that's how we know that he has gastroparesis. I have asked this doctor if the liver is also apart of the problem he didn't seem to concerned. My son has jaundice in the whites of his eyes and his bilirubin levels are extremely high but because he has a fatty liver i don't know. Well my son will be having surgery on tuesday and i'm going to ask the surgeon while he has my son open to check for other problems. He is 15 years old, plays football, has a 4.0 grade average, he doesn't want to miss school and with these attacks that he is having it's getting worse and more frequent any advice as to what might be happening besides the gastroparesis?
