you will get more educated answers then mine, but I can tell you that your colon, or large intestine, wrap around the top of the belly button and on the left and right sides. it usually takes 2-3 hours to get food to the smaill intestine and anywhere from hours to days for it to go out from the colon.
pain with this DD is confusing and seems to end up in all sorts of places. what tests did they do to suspect crohns? if you haven't had a small bowel follow through that is one that can usually be done pretty quickly. the different tests look at different areas, so it can take a while to get a clear picture of what is going on. the best thing to do is DON'T panic and breathe often. 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 vicidin as needed.
