Confused And Worried After Ultrasound

2 posts in this topic

My son (4 yrs) has had abdominal pain, stomach issues and behavioral problems for a long time. Celiac disease has been suspected, but so far tests have generally been negative (no tTG antibodies, negative biopsy, but DQ2 positive). He has been on a gluten free diet for a month. Friday he went to ultrasound check of inner organs, and everything looked fine, except the small intestine. The ultrasound doctor said parts of it was totally smooth and dilated and sorrounded by lymph nodes. The affected area was below the part of the intestine that is reached by gastroscopy.

We now have to wait for his GI to get back to us with the results from the ultrasound, but also from X-ray, immunohistochemistry of the biopsy and stool sample. I tried to reach him today, without any luck, and I am going out of my mind trying to figure out what this mean. Could this still be celiac disease (even though all the other tests were negative)? And could one expect him to be anitbody negative if the damage is so severe that it is visible on ultrasound? I mean it is rather severe if one sees it on ultrasound, isn't it? Could this be Crohn's disease instead? What else? If anyone has any similar experience or some insight that might help, I would really appreciate it!
