For the last ~3 weeks I have been in the midst of a bad flare. Whenever I ate any solid foods, I had worse than normal abdominal pain, bloating, and gas. I have basically been unable to eat much of anything since the beginning and have lost considerable weight (belt is no longer tight enough). Talked to my GI doc on Friday, he put in orders for CT and bloodwork, he also said that if I have a stricture (I already know I do) that surgery is probably the next step. As long as I get even 6 months of relief, I will be happy to go under the knife. It's just so aggravating to go back and forth seemingly every-other day feeling well, when on liquids, and in pain when eating food. I don't really know what to expect, but hopefully I'll get some answers.
