Hi all. I was diagnosed in November '05 with Crohn's when I went to the ER with abdominal pain & wound up having a bowel resection. Since then I haven'y had any severe problems, but every 6 months or so I get pains for a few days which usually turn out to be nothing.
I just spend 4 days in the hospital with severe pain. No doctor could tell me where the pain is coming from. No obstruction, etc. The catscan showed an enlarged spleen and lymph nodes.
Since the resection, I have been taking 6mp, Entocort, Pentasa, Florastor, & Fish oil. I am afraid that the 6mp may be causing this, but the doctors say "I don't think so" or "most likely, not." Those answers don't sit well with me. I have been afraid of the 6mp ever since I started taking it.
My catscan before the resection in '05 showed a normal spleen. The new catscan & the one in '06 show it enlarged and with lymph nodes.
Has anyone had problems like this? Please help. Thank you.
