My daughter has extreme pain and every doctor told her she was constipated, to go home, rest and try to pass stools (after MRIs, and way high elevated WBC). She went into preterm labor at 23.5 weeks, baby lived for 1 hour 29 minutes breathing, moving his arms and legs, and they just let him die. She had peritonitis with ascites that had to be removed. They moved her to the ICU and then that's when they told us her diagnosis; the one they kept missing! We kept telling them something was wrong, please help her. Just sad all around.

My peritonitis went without care for over 30 days! The doctors said they didn't know why I was having all my pain! Even after ultrasounds and MRIs! Elevated WBC and liver enzymes through the roof! It (peritonitis) put me into pre-term labor at 22.5 weeks along and my son lived for only 1 hour and 29 minutes. Finally they told me the day after I had my son that I had a huge pocket of fluid in my belly. Please demand to have your doctors listen to you, you know your body best!
