Tmi post: What would cause a child to be constipated and run a fever? it's reached 102.5 at times. Went to er last night with much abdominal pain and the fever. Many lab type tests, as well as X-ray pointed towards the constipation/ impacted area they saw and some dehydration. No CAT scan for appendix but pain was in the middle and then X-ray showed the other. He's had some progress with the constipation after the drink they sent, water, prune juice and fiber food. I've not been successful in getting him to take as much of all of that as needed but he's taking some. But his fever is back to 101 right now.
I just don't understand the fever with it.
