I started having problems with my stomach in late Nov 07, lots of D and a fever for a couple of days. 3-4 days later I started to have stomach cramps which were followed by a feeling of being really full after eating only small amounts. These symptoms lasted a couple of weeks and then went away. On Jan 3, 08 I woke up in the middle of the night with SEVERE cramps and D and a little vomiting. Since that time the bloating feeling has come back. I went to the Dr. and had CT with dye, Xrays, blood tests, and ultrasound, none of which showed anything.
Finally last week I had a upper and lower scope. The upper showed nothing but the lower showed a significant narrowing at the Ileum. As many poster here stated they could not get the tube through. A couple of biopsies were taken and I am nervously awaiting the results. The Dr. does not think it is CD because I do not have D on a regular basis, I think he is leaning towards cancer. But I notice there are several people on this site that do not have problems with D. Also my bowels have gotten thinner probably due to the blockage
Note I am 41 with no prior gastro problems before the Nov incident. Also I live in Tokyo.
Please provide your thoughts and insights
