Patient Comments: Intussusception - Child's Symptoms

What were your child's symptoms associated with an intussusception?

Comment from: diane, 3-6 Female (Caregiver) Published: September 16

She has abdominal pain that lasts 15-20 sec. and repeats every 10-15 minutes. After the pain goes away she is back to normal again, but when the pain starts she drops everything and cries from pain.
