My daughter was born with a malrotation; she had the ladds procedure when she was 13 years of age (7 years ago) and was told it was successful. After many years of similar pain etc she has finally seen a top gastroenterologist who has just confirmed after an MRI scan that she still has the malrotation (it's literally just at the beginning of her dueodeum after the stomach). It looks like she' s going to have to put up with this for hte rest of her life and they are prescibing strong pain killers pregabalin 25mg x 2 per day and merbentyl. What other options do we have? Please help!!!
