That's it,i want it done to look at my small bowel(that poor thing never got scope lol).
 
I have my barium follow through done as well.There is "no" stricture so i can digest a metal pill!!!
 
I would like a place with little delay and a good price.

Mostly the promesthus blood tests as well as some inflamation and ulceration in a colonoscopy. Clean biopsy though. None of the other tests showed much of anything.

Hi Do they do the pill cam in Quebec? I am not sure if they have it in Nova Scotia I never asked.I did have IBS for 27 years before my DX and heaven ony knows how long the CD was there. I had scope, SBFT ,barium enenama, CT, and ultra sound done. The scope DX mine but probably wasn't hard because I had the abs and stuff going on. Let us know where you will be getting it done in Quebec or wherever. lol gail

Casco Bay Endoscopy in So. Portland, Maine is a pretty decent place and close to you too. I don't know what it costs though. I'm sure it would be the going rate whatever that is.
10 years, many tests, 3 gi doctors, Pentasa 1000mg 3x day
diovan, simvastatin and now trying good ol' zoloft

I would have thought this would be cheaper in Canada. Is it not available in Canada?

Also,i would like to evaluate mt bowel permeability because my IBS have been cause by NSAID.

I suspect i have NSAID-induced enteropathy. confused
