My son's been sick for months and has severe pain RUQ. He's had every test imaginable and they all look normal. The only thing we've seen is his ejection rate is 91%. Of course the doctors say this is great and perfectly normal. My thoughts are he is in extreme pain, can't eat or drink, and has had a lot of weight loss. We are at a stand still now. Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts?
Check his Vitamin D level, if you live in above South Carolina state, the sun rays reaching the earth surface doesn't make enough vitamin d from Nov to March, supplementation of at least 2000IU per day is required.
Let the doctor check his Vitamin D levels and correct for any, then keep him on supplement during winter months, and in summer, try to expose him to sun more frequently.
My daughter's was 4% when she had her test done as a teen .. .she had her GB removed and all is fine. We were lucky to get an answer with a # that clinched her diagnosis. I know how hard it is to have a child in pain w/o a diagnosis.
I wish we would have been low. I hear about all the cases where people with the high ejection have their gallbladders removed, but I have went through several doctors now and no one will even listen.
Glad to hear your daughter is doing well! Hopefully we get there soon
He had a cat scan a few years ago for a different injury, so they don't want to do another because of the radiation. He's had two different MRIs though. Wondering if kidney stones would have shown up on those pictures? I will look into that, thanks.
