Hi,

Thank you for your query.

I can understand your situation having to bear such suffering in the family.

I shall appreciate if you can share the following details before some guidance can be provided:
1. Location of pain in the abdomen.
2. How long does the pain last?
3. Relationship of the pain with meals?
4. Other investigations done apart from CT - ultrasound of abdomen, stool routine, etc.
Abdomen, being a large cavity with many organs in it, one has to know all the details before a possible cause can be ascertained.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.

Regards,

RKK
