My 7 year old had a minor surgery and 3 days later we ended up in the ER with trouble breathing. We were treated for Pnumonia but now think that was not it at all. Lung x-rays showed nothing and blood work was good. Anyway we are 5 weeks after surgery and have been experiencing all the signs of panic attacks and something almost every day. I am scared for my child!! It is so hard to watch her go through this and the things she says while trying to describe what she is feeling is horrible to here. How can I help her and will it stop soon.View Thread
