I need help determining where to go for help. My daughter is 11 yrs. old. She is slightly overweight, but her belly seems to stick out unnaturally. She has something wrong with her gums and teeth--they are red and bleed everytime she brushes and it seems that plaque becomes excessive during the day. My #1 concern I guess is her innattention to the world. I get so frustrated that she can't remember something from one minute to the next. She doesn't ever seem to be able to hold to the topic. She definitely fits almost every single symptom of ADD (not the "H). She has been off of chemo for Wilms Tumor for almost 2 years and all of these symptoms except the mouth thing were present before cancer. I consulted a psychologist once but by the time the appointment came around she seemed to be doing better. Now she is worse. Help! What could this be? I don't know if any of the symptoms are related but thought I would list everything I was concerned about.
