So Im 7 months post op 63cm bowel resection. My CD went from bad to worse after the surgery. I have been Pred dependant ever since. I started Humira 6 weeks ago and have gotten worse....Still on 30 of PRED
Last night I woke up with the worst pain in my life I thought I had perfed again. I called my GI this morning who of coarse was not in the office and the NP sent me for a STAT CT scan.
CT Scan prior to surgery 7 months ago showed CD at the T. Illieum
CT Scan today shows distended small bowel loop in the mid left abdomen, small bowel obstruction in the left mid abdomen, thickened folds in hte right mid abdomen, thickened folds in the right lower abdomen. And kidney stones to boot!!
Does this mean the CD has spread throughout my bowel?
The NP called My doc and he feels I need a surgical consult. I go back tomorrow to see him. Im afarid because the diseased portions are so spread out they will have to remove a ton of bowel.........
Also, I have an appointment Thursday to be screened for Prochymal Clinical Trial Any suggestions?
