14 yr old with severe abdominal pain with diarreah for over 3 weeks. 4 CT's showed inflamed and enlarged lymph nodes, fluid in abdomen, ovarian cyst and enlarged appendix, which was removed. Ultra Sound normal, Hide-a-Scan normal, Colonoscopy and Endoscopy normal, blood cultures normal, 1st stool culture normal, 2nd stool culture grew C-Diff, Psychiatrist says not mental, Neurologist says not stomach migraine, and now they are trying to say Viral Gastroenterology. V G shouldn't last more than 1-10 days. They want to put her on Elivil, a depressant, for pain. We have been at a #1 childrens hospital for over a week, and our home town Drs. and hospital treated her for 2 weeks before coming here. Anyone got a suggestion?
