Hello All, Well just got back from my Cleveland Clinic Visit.. All I have to say is if anyone needs a wonderful place to go for gi problems go to the Cleveland Clinic.. They are so caring and great.. I think you all know my story.. I am 42 years old and have had stomach issues for 20 years.. Really bad the last 10. I have had 6 surgeries 4 laporscopies, hysterectomy, gallbladder appendix and ahdehsion removal and I still have pain and IBS.. Well I went to the Cleveland CLinic confinced that I have Chrons dis.. I gave them all my records including my egd,colonoscopy,ct scan.. The doctor talked with me for over an hour he was very detailed about
every sympton that I have.. At the end of the visit he asked me so what do you think you have.. I told him I think I have Chrons dis.. He said he is 98% sure I don't... I started crying.. He told me I really don't want to have chrons dis.. I said I know but I want a answer.. He said IBS is looked at very different now.. It is a dx.. It can be diblitating.. He understands my pain and it is REAL!!!!! I am going to have more tests done there I will let you know how they go.. He also told me to try remoran.. It is a antidepresant that they are using for IBS.. Is anyone else on it??? It is kind of new.. He said it tarkets the serantonin that you need, but without all the side effects like with the SSRIs like Zoloft,paxil and so on.. Also it helps you sleep.. Sounds like a good drug!! haha Anyway thanks for all the support.. I will let you know!!!
