Intestine folding (3yr. old)

We have been in and out of the hospital with my 3yr old boy in the past 2 months. No specialist has been able to determine my son's illness. Strong stomach pain and fever. The only thing they say is folding of the large interstine, and is there a cure for this??? Please HELP!

I don't know anything about this complaint except that I think that two of the medical words to decribe it are:-

- intestinal volvulus
- intussception

Maybe type those words into Google/yahoo etc and see whether this provides you with further information on which to interrogate your son's doctors.

My nephew Jack is in the hospital now with intussception a vary dangerous condition. I would recommend you read about this on google and get him to a children's hospital..
