Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
I am sorry to hear about your son suffering so much. Since the symptoms involve mainly the lungs and digestive symptoms and have started pretty early, cystic fibrosis should be ruled out. Abdominal pain, vomiting, problems with stool, recurrent cough cold and fever are the hall mark of the disease.
Please discuss this with your son’s pediatrician. Take care!
