Brief Answer: please refer to the following answer... Detailed Answer: Hi I read carefully all your child concerns and I am sorry for her situation. Based on the FGD-scopy, the problems consist in her stomach, and the causes might be: - pyloric stenosis (a narrowing of the passage from the stomach to small intestines) - gastroparesis (as the food was stucked in the stomach due to no movement of stomach) - possible complication of Rolandic seizures Could you please send in all the tests results? That could help assisting you further. Meanwhile, I'd suggest to - wait for the results of the biopsy, - give your daughter some pain-killers - let her rest more - give her more water and do not push her to eat Looking forward to have the results of the tests performed! Wish you health! Dr.Klerida
