I have a 4year old who has sufered from stomach problems since he was 2years
old. He got so bad that he was hospitalized due to pancreatitis and after
several months of CT Scans/MRI/Ultra sounds and countless blood work. I was
refered to a Surgen by the Pediatric GI. He indicated that our son has a
blockage in the common bile but not sure if it was due to the pancreatitis or
if that is what caused the pancreatitis. He believes it is not cancer but
worried since he doesn't really know why he has the blockage. maybe a cyst
but only says all they can do is monitor with ultra sounds to check if it
continues to grow. just tells us if son develops juandice, abdominal pain
and starts his constant vomiting again to notify him right away and go to er.
Does anyone have or had similar problems? I know pancretitis and most
common bile problems unless child is born with a bile abnormality happen to
adults and not really seen in children.
