I am sorry you had to endure the pain while waiting. It is a miserable feeling. On one of my first ER visits I had a total obstruction and the they didn't call in a GI for 15 hours. I literally thought I was dying. Once they gave me moriphine and put in a gastric tube I felt like a new person.
I would assume active crohns is what we call flaring. Did they give you anymore details? Was your pain from a bowel obstruction, inflammation, or scar tissue/adhesion? I hope you are feeling better soon.
dx'd with Crohns 1984, I was in remission for 12 years
