  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • 8 yr old son admitted to hospital 5 days ago (sat morning). Started feeling unwell on the Thursday - with very high fever (40.3) shivers and slight right side pain comes and goes but not writhing in pain. Temp spikes consistently (40.2). Was sick on sat and sun, not sick since but nausea comes and goes. First they thought strep A but bloods confirmed it wasn't. Ultrasound yesterday brought up kidney inflammation. Gave him gentamicin yesterday aft, a one off IV dose. Topped up with broad spectrum antibiotics, via IV. History of chronic constipation, tummy was full of pooh at ultrasound, passed massive pooh last night. Movicol via mouth started yesterday, 2 per day, increasing to 4 per day from today. No improvement in him to look at. Extremely tired, pale and last night had temp spikes and cold sweats, had to change bedding twice. Is this the low before the high? Also when he gets temp spike and shivers , it sounds like his tummy is rumbling and he feels sick. Never once complained if pain passing urine. Urine smelt strong yest, tested and shows blood and protein, been sent to lab, awaiting results. Am I being neurotic? My instinct is not happy. Any advice greatly received please. Thank you.
