Well, I had the dreaded colonoscopy today. Oh Lord! but it was painful! I thought I screamed through the whole thing..but the GI said I was just moaning and groaning.... guess I was just screaming in my head.
Now here's the kicker! I've been living with CD for over 30 years.... my last colonoscopy showed CD in my TI and a few strictures. That colonoscopy was done back home. Today, this different GI says he sees no evidence of CD.... either the meds have been working really well and I am in remission.... or I've never had CD at all. I don't understand this. How can you have CD one minute and not the next????? I have been soooo sick all these years. He says I have the painful , not the spastic type of IBS and wants to see me in his office in a couple of weeks.
I ' m really confused. He still hasn't found the source of that bleed I had about 3 weeks ago...
Now I feel like a fool.... I feel like I'm getting "it's all in your head, or it's just stress " speach all over again. I remember being soooo relieved when I got my CD dx because I finally felt like I wasn't crazy.
Furthermore.... I asked him if I should then stop my CD meds and he says no... they seem to be working well....lets just keep up with them. I'm really confused.?
Have any of you had similar experiences.?
