NEED HELP! I have a 25 yr old son-in-law with a long history of intestinal problems. Not having good ins. I belive has blinded some of his Drs. I have only been informed of this problem in recent mounths. He has two MRIs that show interupted inferior vena cava, but the Drs say this is too rare for someone of his age so they just don't explain. The doctors admit there is no blockage so they can't help. the MRIs show "the inferior vena cava is not there" but still functions via colateral veins. Can anyone direct us to maybe a specialist as his condition is deteriorating rapidly? We are in So. Ill, and there seems to be a shortage of Drs willing to help. Is ther no hope?
