Our 14 year old, very healthy son had emergency surgery in Dec. to remove his gallbladder and appendix. The gallbladder looked like it had come from a middle-aged person, the appendix was on the verge of bursting - all within a 24 hours period. The surgeon was very concerned because it is highly unusual to have this happen. He found no tumors and tested for various diseases and cancer, but nothing was found. Then, last week our ENT discovered a very large polyp in his left sinus. He had surgery to remove it yesterday. It had grown even larger and spread out of his sinus up into the frontal lobe area. Our ENT feels this is related to the issues in December and commented that they are "Ductile issues." Nothing is turning up in tests!!! We are frantic with concern. We also recall that as a newborn, he had to have his two eye ducts surgically opened. Now we're wondering if this is somehow related to what is going on now. If you have ideas, please post.
