I’m hoping I’m in the right place! My healthy, athletic happy 9 year old son randomly had intussusception back in October. It was easily reversed, and all’s been well since. We’ve met with a gastroenterologist. She was only concerned because of his age, considering this normally happens in babies. We did an ultrasound 2 weeks ago that showed he has lymph nodes that are on the larger side. They haven’t grown, or gone down in size since October. So now he needs to get an MRI. My anxiety is THROUGH the roof! I’m thinking the worst, and I’m absolutely terrified. He has a half brother who had mekels diverticulitis with perforation a few years ago. I wonder if somehow these things are related?! Maybe hereditary? Please help me not think worst case scenario!
