Here's a link from the CCFA about IBD and IBS but you'll have to copy and paste it into your search engine to get to it.
I am having the same symptoms as you right now with constipation feeling and small thin stool. For years I had severe painful D and they said I only had IBS. I think they just couldn't reach to see the spot in my TI to see the crohn's. Or maybe I have both? who knows. In the last 2 years since my diagnosis of CD the painful D has subsided and went to the small thin stool scenario. I had a bowel resection in Feb. and I had 3 narrowing in my TI so that explained the thin stool and painful partial blockage episodes. I was doing great,since surgery, normal size bm's etc and now in the last month back to the small thin stool? Still waiting for entocort to make a difference if it is going to?
What was the meds that your doc. prescribed? Are those suppositories to help inflammation in the rectum area? I've been wondering if that is where I might also be inflammed?
I know how stressful it is travelling with all of this. We also went to Disneyland last October when I feeling like this before my surgery. I travelled fine and we had a great time. I hope the same for you....hopefully everything will just "coast" until you get back and try to resolve this. Hug Mickey for me!
Hi Chris, I was on Pentasa when I was first dx and then also Entocort when the stricture pain started. A ct scan finally confirmed that I have CD and also showed the narrowing. The entocort got me thru the christmas season and then I had surgery in Feb.08.
How long ago did you have the capsule and colonoscopy done? How long have you been on pentasa and entocort?
These suppositories that he prescribed....are they an anti-inflammitory? Never heard of these, just curious?
Are you having alot of pain?
Thinking of you............Shelley
