Hello, My pain had always been on my right TI, but for the past few months I have pain from the left to the right all the way across. Tonight it is so bad I can hardly stand it. I have a very high pain tolerence. It does not feal like an obstruction as I have had 3 of those in the past. Is this a sign that my CD has spread to my descending colan? I will be calling my GI Dr next week. Also I can "feal" the stool moving through me, is this normal. Feals like when I was pregnant and the baby was pushing on e with a foot.
Thank so much, KayC

I think calling your doc is a very good thing.

I agree with Navy, I think you should at least discuss this with your doc. Hugs!

Yup, what Nanners and Navy said. If this has been going on for several months it is way past time you should be seeing your gastro.
 
I don't know that it is the descending colon you should be concerned about. Crohn's tends to skip UP stream rather than down stream.
 
Our digestive tract starts at our mouth,
then our esophagus,
then our stomach,
then the very beginning of the small intestine which is the duodenum,
the next section of the small intestine which is the jejunem,
then the bulk of the small intestine which is the ileum;
the last 3 feet of the ileum are usually referred to as the terminal ileum;
the ileocecal valve is located at the end of the TI and empties into the cecum,
the cecum is the beginning of the colon and the appendix is located off the bottom of the cecum,
the next section of the colon is the ascending colon which runs up the right side of our abdomen,
near the liver this makes a turn across the top of the abdomen and is called the transverse colon,
at the left side of the abdomen the colon turns, runs down the left side of our body and is called the descending colon,
followed by the sigmoid colon which turns to the center of our body,
to the rectum which runs down to the exit which is called the anus.
 
So, if the pain runs across the lower abdomen from the lower right quadrant to the left, we would assume there is some possible inflamation and disease activity from the ICV region along the TI and further up the ileum. Or some narrowing or partial obstruction near the ICV stretching the TI and causing the pain and discomfort.
 
Pick up the phone and call your gastro and hopefully get some relief from the pain and discomfort and stop any more damage from being done.
 
(((hugs))) and good luck!
