It depends where your Crohn’s is located. From what my GI told me, the upper right or right-sided pain comes from Crohn’s in the small intestine – whereas my pain is lower left pain and bloating, and always has been, as I haven Crohn’s colitis – Crohn’s of the large bowel/colon, which is located on the left hand side.
My Crohn’s (Crohn’s colitis/colon Crohn’s) is not as common as small bowel Crohn’s – hence most people complaining of upper right quadrant pain. I was always confused as to why my pain was different but now I know why!
I am with Phoebe, before my resections it was always LRQ, now that I have had 2 resections its always URQ (actually middle right quadrant).
