"Adult diapers" were mentioned!! She told how humiliated she felt when she put on her first adult diaper. they even showed it. I have to laugh in that show whenever there are bathroom issues for any reason they keep showing the toilet bowl, the seat going up, etc.
Yes, I also thought of Crohn's immediately. When the doctor mentioned that possibility my husband looked over at me but I haven't had the extreme bathroom issues so he couldn't identify with that. Even though they concluded it was her gallbladder, we *know* that might not have been end of story but I'm glad she got some relief, even if temporary.
This has to be my favorite show. Some of them seem obvious, how could anyone miss it, but others are really informative. There is another show on the same channel about unusual medical issues, I forget the title of the show but if you ever see "I am my own twin" watch it. Nothing to do with CD, but really interesting.
