Hi I have a 15 year old daughter who has been vomiting at least 3x a week since late January. She has intense left lower quadrant pain followed by vomiting. She vomits undigested food. This seems to only occur in the evening after dinner. She had a ct scan which showed mesenteric adenitis on 02/07. She also had an ultrasound which showed sm right cyst and fulid in the Douglas pouch? Any help would be appreciated. Shes missing school and feels very poorly. Shes also tired all the time. Thanks again. Kate's mom

  • I thought mesenteric adenitis effected the right side and mimics appendicitis?

Thanks again. Kate's mom I can't offer a diagnosis but would suggest trying acupuncture to help her symptoms. Acupuncture is a whole body form of medicine and can't get her pain and vomiting symptoms under control. Visit www.acufinder.com to find a qualified practitioner near you. A good acupuncturist who is also a Chinese herbalist would be very helpful. Fresh ginger tea is very good for nausea and vomiting. What are her stools like? Has she also had a HIDA scan to check for GB disease? Best wishesDOM

  • Look into diverticulitis.... classic sign is LQ abodimnal pain. Get an abdominal cat scan or abdominal MRI. She needs to be in the care of a GI dr pronto.... for a colonoscopy and testing for IBD diseases like crohns, celiac, ulcerative colitis. Don't delay.... she will keep getting sicker from food malabsobtion if you delay getting her qualified professional help.

  • Continue with the allopathic testing for sure, including a HIDA scan if that hasn't been done yet. But consider acupuncture as it would also help correct the imbalance and help control the pain and the vomiting. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a full system of medicine that has been used for over 3,000 years. It is a great adjunct to Western testing and treatment. DOM

  • The fluid in the Pouch of Douglas is possibly related to a normal ovarian cystat ovulation. The mesenteric adenitis could be the cause of the vomiting and the abdominal pain. Usually, the cause is a virus and resolves within a week. If it the mesenteric lymph nodes are still inflammed, then further steps into identifying the cause for the enlarged lymph nodes must be taken. It could be a bacteria such as Brucella or even bovine TB.Check with your doctor, have a stool culture test and you may have to repeat the CT.MRGH
