I am not at work today....obviously since I spent the morning with the barium folks! I need my med. books!
First, wow they made me drink very little of the barium compared to past tests and when she saw me gagging, made it thinner than I have ever seen! From what I saw (and yes I studied the films too), I have the same situation as always...narrowing at my old surgical site (TI).
While waiting, I got to read my GI notes from my scope. Help with conclusions here please folks...have to see him tomorrow night.
I know what the "stenotic ileocecal valve" means, but I have never seen it noted before. Something that comes on suddenly, needs more care or is it just the norm? It also noted "ulceration with acute cryptitis & cryptic abcess" whatever cryptitis means. Finally, what does "Abaustral descending colon" mean? the b may have been an h but I still can't find what that means.
I am ready to tell him to leave me alone with my Pentasa for 12 more months instead of going to Imuran like he STRONGLY suggests. Thanks my researching pals!!!! Gotta go slurp down some more water and will be back later!!!!
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
