I got some results, I am still quite astonished as to how this is all handled. My daughter had the procedure done Thurs. They said the Dr. would call us w/ the results within the next 24 to 48 hrs. I couldn't wait any longer, so I called late Mon. afternoon. The nurse told me they mailed me the results, I should have them any day and the Dr. would go over them at the follow up appt. I got the results in the mail yesterday. It says: abnormal, 10 cm of ileum inflammed, Dr. will go over at follow up. I guess this must be a good result?
She hasn't been vomiting but we still have her on a low residue diet. She is still complaining of pain. She has been having a sharp, shooting pain in her lower right side and last night she said it felt like she was having back spasms. I think prednisone may be helping some, as her color looks better and she has actually had a bit of an appetite. She still has pains and just feels ill shortly after eating though. As always thanks for any input!
