It has been 18 months since my diagnosis, and this week I am scheduled for a SBFT, TB test, and to start Humira. I am sore, bloated, and blue. I hope they find nothing in my SBFT and I also hope they find something! I am so weary of being in pain, not knowing for sure what is wrong, getting advice from everyone, and having no idea what will come next. the last SBFT I had, the radiologist nearly scolded me, saying "you don't have crohns and I see nothing wrong with you!" that was following one three months before when another radiologist showed me my inflammed TI and said "this is the money shot and you have crohns." is it any wonder I am a bit nutty!  confused
 
I will let you all know how it goes on Tuesday; thanks for listening! yp

48 y/o woman.  Diagnosed 4/06 after colonscopy, SBFT, CT-scan all showed crohns. 3 months later, after pred and remicade, all tests showed no crohns. In December had adhesions cut through a laparoscopy. Now just taking Glycolax, metamucil, and preparing to begin Humira.

I hope they find what they need to give you the final answer on what's wrong. And as for radiologists.......I had one talk to me like I was five years old. I was not happy.

I am glad to hear I am not the only one who has had radiologist troubles. the bad one was mad at me for hoping she could see something...as in "crohns is a terrible illness and you should be happy you don't have it" well yeah, I think I know that, but what the heck is wrong??!?

thank you for all you good wishes. I am a bit of a wreck today and want the week to be ok. yp

Hope all goes well for you this week yoga. I know how frustrating it can be, still not sure what my problem is other than I feel I could go nuts before any one else figures it out. Keep us informed!
