Pain in lower right side, x-ray shows fecal matter. Taken magnesium citrate. Can heat pad be applied?
My son had an X-ray of his stomach do to some pain on the lower right side. The xray showed a lot of fecal matter and his ped told him to take magnisium citrate. We did it and he had a BM but still had pain. We put him on a liquid diet the next day and tried magnisium citrate again. The pain has lessened but he still has some pain. No fever, nausea , vomiting or pain standing sitting or walking upright. We would like to try a heat pad?
Hi, From history it seems that your son might be having absolute constipation. Continue giving laxative. Give him light diet. Give him more fiber containing diet and fruits juices. Give him plenty of water. Ok and take care.
