I knew something wasn’t right
At the end of November 2018, our three-year-old son Gaspard, was getting constipated and complaining about tummy pain. We thought it was just constipation and we went to the GP early December, who gave him treatment.
During the next few weeks, it got worse. Gaspard was not eating anymore, became very pale and tired and was waking up at night complaining that one of his legs hurt badly.
We were due to go on holiday for Christmas but I knew something wasn’t right with Gaspard. He was not the happy little boy he used to be, no longer smiling and not being himself. To ease my worries and know that it would take time to see a specialist through the NHS, I took him to a private gastro specialist who did a scan.
