Glad your scope went well---was it a colonoscopy? Just curious. Since Crohn's can occur anywhere in the GI tract, will you also be having an endoscope to view your esophagus, and stomach? Also, a colonoscopy doesn't check the entire small intestine (a CT and small bowel follow through does). Also, blood tests aren't always 100% accurate. Did your prior Prometheus tests show Crohn's?Just ideas---
Sorry to hear you're feeling so poorly.
You may already be aware of this, but IBS does NOT cause bleeding, ulcerations etc; however, IBD (Crohn's or Colitis) can. With IBS, there are no structural changes or damage to the intestines. Something to consider---could your pain etc. be caused by a perforated bowel? Although a perforated bowel during a colonoscopy is extremely rare, it does happen. Symptoms range from abdominal pain, to excessive gas, to distension, to diarrhea, to nausea & vomiting. If the pain etc. continues or gets worse, I'd sure consider a CT scan to see what's going on.
Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon!
