I just saw my Dr. today. It's been 2.5 yrs since being diagnosed with Crohn's. Weened off of Entocort over the course of a yr, been on Pentasa only for 6mos. Just went through a month or so of having constipation for 4-6 days, then the fun day of cramps and catching up for those 4-6 days. This is my usual....I'm good for a couple of months and then go through this.
Dr is concerned about scarring and stricture (?) so wants to refer me to another Dr or Surgeon to do the next colonoscopy. Thinks that dilation might be an option and that way the other qualified dr could do it if it seems appropriate at the time of the colonoscopy.
I know nothing about this procedure...is this something that I should be concerned about. Especially since it's something that I won't know if they are going to do or not?
Any advice would be great. Don't know if I gave the right info to get your advice...but hope so.
