Abdominal pain

Since last September (2009) my 13 year old daughter has had terrible abdominal pain. At first they thought appendix, rushed her to the best hospital in the area. Finally they said "oh it must have been a ruptured ovarian cyst." Well it never got better, in fact much worse. She was in so much pain she could not respond, we've been to numerous hospitals even Oregon Health Science. Where they finally decided it was all in her head. A few months pass with just general nausea then it starts all over again, finally a “gas doctor” that would see a minor, they determine her gallbladder is bad and it needs to come out. So we did, recovery was rough but she looked to be doing better after a week or so only to have a new pain in her abdomen develop a month later. Now she is nauseated ever day and can hardly eat. Last trip to ER they said her lipase leaves are slightly elevated and to go see the “gas doc” again. So far I have found this to be connected with inflammation of the pancreas or the kidneys. Only the doc doesn’t think so.
