I just read Torrie's post about her daughter and I am feeling just as desperate and frustrated and emotional. My daughter is 15, has only made it to 3 full days of school out of 9 so far this year, (missed about 30 last year), has had much testing including colonoscopy and endoscopy this summer, just changed meds to Bentyl and Amitriptyline, takes probiotics 2x/day, are keeping a journal and trying to watch foods (hard w/ a big family). Gets terrible abdominal pain (we rate on scale of 1-10 (1 best) and today is a 9. Usually gets bad diarrhea w/ the pain. Woke up at 4AM w/ pain. I feel like we are all over the place w/ doctors, are trying biofeedback, have looked into altern. med. Feel like no one Dr. is really taking this on. Has been very emotional for me as her mom and I am so worried about school and how to keep up -- do I homeschool, etc. Help from anyone especially moms or teen daughters? Thanx so much.
