I had a ctscan friday with dye and drinking that stuff, they called me an hour after that and upped my prednisone from 40mg to 60mg and told me he'd talk to me on monday about thet rest of it. I am wondering what all they can tell from that test. I have been having discomfort and pain in my upper right belly, under my ribs like. Thats why he did the test. Anyone know what they could have found........please help.
 Thanks, Sherri

I know you are anxious to hear the rest of the results of the CT Scan and today is Monday so hopefully you will know soon.  I would not want to guess and toss ideas at you when your so close to talking with your physician.

I do want to send you good vibes and know we are thinking of you.
Keep us posted as we are all here to support you.

I had a colonoscopy done first for my last flare. The doc said it looked better than ever, but I had a stricture. Then, I had a UGI/SBFT....showed the same thing. It wasn't until I ended up in the hospital that they did a CT scan and found tons of inflammation all over the place. This was the second time the CT scan showed something that the other tests did not.

Good luck!
