     I was to drugged to be much good to anyone.  I am so frustrated. The GI found no active crohns. He did find something in my stomach that would explain the vomitting of blood. He said that it looked like it was healing.
 
    What he found in the stomach I don't know.  I was to drugged to understand much of it. I see him on thursday of next week and that the biopseys [sp] should be back by then.
 
    I'm frustrated and ready to throw my hands up the air and say I give up. I have been poked and x-rayed enough. May be this is just me and who I am. I don't know.

it doesn't seem like too much to ask, eh?
what test did you have?
keep me posted. yp

Maybe you had a stomach ulcer that is healing. Are you on any kind of acid reflux meds? They could have healed it.

I have been trying to respond or reply but my computor has been causing problems.

I had my tests done last tuesday. Hard to tell if the laxitives are still in high gear or if it's normal crohns? I still seem to be flowing. I weighed in at the therapist's office at 101 lb.

I just got a message that my GI's nurse has been trying to contact me today. So I call and of course she's at lunch. I assume if it was bad news the GI would have called. At least that is what I am thinking.

I did find out yesterday that I have internal hemorrids. Have no idea what that means? If anyone wants to explain I would appreciate it.

I'm sorry to hear you're so frustrated, but so understand. The internal hemorrhoids mean that the tissue is swollen on the inside at the anal area (at least that's my understanding). They are very painful, but they haven't prolapsed to the outside, which is what external hemmies do.

Let us know what you hear from the dr. -Joy
48 yr. old. Ileocolitis.  CD since early teens, misdx'd until age 36.  Hemicolectomy-left side in 2001.  Disease returned in 2003. Arthritis, episcleritis, chronic pain due to surgeries (nerve damage, adhesions) and disease.  Recently dx'd scoliosis.  History of endometriosis.
