Hi everyone, I have stumbled on this web site and am learning a lot amidst the tears and angst. So-my history is kinda weird by have had lower rt quadrant pain for 1 1/2 years, exploratory lap in March 2010 with the supposition of scar tissue revision only to find out the doc took out my appendix as it looked "weird" even though he and my PCP swore it wasn't appendix related. 7 days later was admitted in patient for sepsis with fever and high white count. Went to see an adult infectious doc who freaked and quickly dumped me in the lap of someone I now refer to as a "grumpy" GI doc. The GI scheduled an upper and lower scope, all biopsies and cultures are negative even as of this week though my labs are remarkable for possible Crohn's. So, my gut hurts, my right side makes me crazy, I don't tolerate much food anymore and the GI doc put me on Endocort EC 9 mg. I started this on Tuesday-idk if it is helping or not. This grumpy GI doc has only seen me in the office once and not made any suggestions about
what the future holds, diet or vitamin recommendations. In the last few days of accelerated learning from all of you, I have read up on the SCD diet, vitamin and mineral supplementation and will start modifying my diet soon. (just eating yogurt and fruit probably is not so very sustainable). So, thank you all for being available, teaching me so very much and sometimes I think I cry as much for you all as for myself. Thanks for being here.
Personal history: married, work full time have 4 kids and don't know how this disease will affect my love for scuba diving and travel.
