WeCanNotAnswerThat: It is very hard for us to answer as we do not know what other tests she has had.Pain in belly button area and vomiting for six months can be serious if she is not gaining weight or has lost weight.Has she seen a Pediatric Gastroenterologist.If so dd she have endoscopic exam.I feel that may be more important than MRI.Consult a Ped Gastroenterologist or get a second opinion.Is she on any treatment?
