CT enterography showed high-grade stenotic stricture approximately 5-6 cms in length in the mid-ileum w/marked dilatation of the bowel proximal to the stricture. Two additional areas of Crohn's disease, one in the distal ileum and another more proximally. Some thickening seen in the distal transverse colon. 8 x 6 xm cystic lesion in the left adnexa.
On the CTE images the dilated portion of the mid-ileum is as big as my stomach, at first I thought it WAS my stomach but unless I had two stomachs .... and then Dr Tremaine tells me that my stomach is distended due to the barium so that just made it more discouraging. *sigh* How can someone feel this well and have such horrible looking innards is beyond me! I don't feel anywhere near so bad as those images look!!!!
I don't even wanna think about how that partial obstruction I lived w/for 2 1/2 years when I was nauseated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week the entire 2 1/2 years must have looked on film!!!! The opening must have been no wider than a straight pin!
Since I don't FEEL that sick its really all rather interesting. I just wish it wasn't me and my innards that were so interesting.
