I want to begin by thanking all of you that responded to my earlier post about my son and a possible blockage. We were able to finally start flushing things out with a lot of help from laxatives. I think that when he was in the hospital the morphine slowed things down and then we had another problem... Anyhow my son is doing much better! He is still having some pain and his joints have flared, but at least we are close to our "normal" again. We will travel to Boise and our GI in a couple of weeks, and I am hoping that they will do another scope/scan to check out the area that is strictured. Somebody asked if he had any resent scopes done... The most recent was a CTscan at the ER last week. I was upset though because they did not use any contrast, so the only thing they were able to say at that point was "no rupture, or obvious blockage". Before that he had a capsule scope in May and a year before that he had a colonoscopy. His blood work has never shown CD, only the scopes. Anyhow thanks to all of you again.
My 11 year old son was Dx in may of 2007, but he had symptoms of CD at age 7. He was Dx with spondylitis in July of 2007, but had symptoms at age 2. I also have a 6 year old going through testing...
