    Stomach Pains

    I've posted a little on this in the past , and my son went in a year ago or so for a colonoscopy. ( The results were a aggravated area of tissue - nothing major)
    It seems my son ( 3 years of treatment - and now 3 years past treatment - 6 total) has stomach pains after , pretty much, every meal? Stool is fairly normal- Anyone else experience something like this? ( Tums, Pepto, etc don't help)
    Son Jacob - 21 years old
    Diagnosed Acute T-Cell ALL July 15th 2012
    Induction Phase from 7/17/12 to 8/15 ( Day 29) Hit Remission couple days prior
    He's on a "Clinic Trial" and qualified for Nelarabine in his Consolidation Phase/Maintenance Phase
    Started Consolidation 8/19/12 - Ended on 11/7/12
    Started Interim Maintenance on 11-28-12 - Ended on 1/23/13
    Started Delayed Intensification on 1/23/13
    Started Maintenance Arm B on 4/10/13 ( It will last 180 days
    Last Round of Nelarabine on 10/25 /13 - Port Removed on 10/30/13
    Started Maintenance Arm B ( No Nelarabine) on 12/16/13

    We are so incredibly complicated creatures that any number of things can come to pass. Has he been scoped for an ulcer? He has produced probably gallons of stomach acid throughout this past trauma. Helicobacter pylori is all well and good in the stomach - until some surrounding condition causes it to rise to unacceptable levels. Somewhere along the same path. I am in the middle of a mystery illness with stomach pain and rather horrible indigestion and what I have been offered so far is concerned expressions.

    Big help.

    I shall keep that in mind, as there seems to be nothing else that helps. Years ago, when I was still in lymphoma treatment, Dr. mentioned probiotics, and I did take them for a time, but treatment was changing so rapidly that I was chasing side effects like some kind of nut.
