I am going through the same thing. Unalble to eat anything but liquids. Otherwise I end up with nausea, vomiting, pain and a TON of gas. Ultrasound of gall bladder looks normal, CT scan of intestines looks normal. Now on to HIDA Scan which shows function of gall bladder. I am having symptoms that happened several years ago when I was diagnosed. Hopefully they can find the cause of all of this because 1.) I am scared I have a partial obstruction 2.) I want to eat normal food again. I am sending good wishes your way. Thank God for this forum. Even my sister thinks it is all in my head and I am having pain due to stress. OY!

Hiya firecracker
Thanks for your reply and I always feel bad for saying this but it's nice to talk to people who are suffering the same. And I don't mean I'm glad you are suffering but we can each understand and support where our fears, frustrations, and utter stress, help each other!!!
What is an hida scan?
Up until yesterday it sounds like we both have the same type of symptoms, all of a sudden, today I feel better than I have done for three whole weeks!! Lol!!!

Please feel free to chat with me anytime, as I know where your coming from about family !!! I'm not sure where you live but if you've ever watched a soap called eastenders, I've been called dot cotton hypochondriac!!!!
And my two sisters came to visit me last week as I haven't been well, they talked about everything else other than my crohns !!!! And then when we eventually did get onto the subject it was said " oh well at least you haven't got cancer!!"

Your not alone on here, and going by other forum users these kind of comments are the norm!!! Don't get me wrong, I realise that this illness is still not publicized enough, or gets the same money raised as other well known illnesses, but that doesn't mean we can't be heard or have a voice !!!

My kind of way of dealing with it is that, I don't understand it myself, so trying to explain to others must be just as puzzling. But your on and in the right place.sending you as we say in wales a BIG CWTCH- which others say a hug xx

Shellybum- Thank you for the encouragement. I love this site because everyone knows and understands what we are going through. My gall bladder ultrasound came back normal. So did a CT Scan. I am now going to get a HIDA Scan, which shows the function of the gall bladder. A gall bladder can have reduced function without any stones. According to my symptoms I either have a partial obstruction (nothing showing on CT scan or in a May colonoscopy) or my gall bladder is bad despite a normal ultrasound. I have been keeping track of my symptoms and I can eat canned fruit, low fat dairy (w/ lactaid pill), boiled potatoes with skin on and with fat free yogurt. However, the minute I add fat (butter, full fat dairy, or cream to coffee) I get major pain, gurgling, gas, and D. Not sure if this means gall bladder is bad or I have a partial obstruction. Just going to keep eating what I can and go for as many tests as possible. Hang in there and keep me posted. Feel free to chat with me as well. Sounds like we have similar situations going on.

Shellybum, This is part of my post yesterday in regards to a question by 73monte regarding what a blockage feels like. Reading your first post it sounded like it could be a blockage. Read this and see if you can relate. Rob
 
"As for a blockage, for me 1) no bowel movements ,probably the day before as well. 2) Belly swells out, 4-5 months pregnant like and becomes hard to the touch. If you press lightly and run fingers up and down the belly it feels like corderoy (hope I came close on spelling). 3) the pain begins as a strong ache in one area of the abdomen for me just above the belly button. Then the area of pain spreads around the belly button into one or both kidneys and the back. Can spread to other areas, everyone's different. 4) Finally the pain is a band about 7-8' wide all around the abdomen front to back and the pain begins what I call cyclical. It starts as an ache and steadily intensifies stronger and stronger until for the last 15 sec. its excru****ing and as well the next 15 more seconds as it begins to subside, back to bad ache and the cycle starts again. The cycles vary widely in time from (the worst) every 2-3 minutes, to every half an hour. 5) The total time for a blockage has been between 6- 40 hours and is very brutal to the body. 6) Vomitting can also be a part of blockages but for me when I vomit it usualy means the beginning of the end. Maybe it will stop in the next 4-6 hours. 7) The recovery is around 2 days for every 6 hours of cyclical pain or more. Again this is my experience but I know many others suffer very similar symptoms."
