confused The pill stopped working 3/4th the way through at the start they found 1 aphthous ulcer, right side they found inflamed fold, left bottom was ulcerated thickened fold, and inflammatory polyp. I was told it was crohn's very mild, in the mid small bowel. So heres where the confusion comes in, When I was told the first time I had crohn's, I had a colonoscpy and was told it was where the small and large intestines come together. How can it be in so many places??? And if it is how is it a mild case??? Its not really under control yet. confused eyes Has anyone heard of something like this before?? And should I maybe go somewhere like mayo???

I think that one shouldn't pay much attention to a dx of mild, severe, or whatever because if you are sick you are sick! it reminds me of when a friend once said when we were talking about how docs ask if your pain is what number, 1-10, "if you are in pain, it is a 10!"
each test shows different things, so your information will keep changing as you have tests.
as for Mayo, I was one step from going to University of Seattle and if I hadn't of gotten better I sure would have. if you have the time and insurance, why not? yp

Crohns can be anywhere from mouth to anus.  And very commonly will appear in various different places.  They call that skip lesions, cuz it skips around.  I have a mild version of Crohns, doesnt mean you are going to feel really good just becuz it mild.  When you are sick, you are going to feel sick.  I think once you can get it under control with the proper meds you will begin to feel better.  Sometimes this process takes alot of time.  Hang in there better days are ahead.  Good luck!

Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.

I was Dx'd at Mayo in MN in early 1976. My symptoms had started in mid-1975. I guess what they might have meant by mild was that it was confined to just one area of the mid-ileum. I don't know for sure what criteria determined it was mild. It sure didn't FEEL mild! I was nauseous 24/7 for 2 1/2 years, I bloated til sometimes I looked like I was 9 months pregnant w/quintuplets, and I had pain that could keep me in bed crying, "no more, God, please, no more".

I had a resection of 18" of the mid-ileum in early 1978. AND WAS THEN BLESSED W/A 20 YEAR REMISSION of disease activity!!! And since its return to "active duty" my Crohn's truly has been mild w/few symptoms or mild symptoms and most of the time this last 10 years in "symptomatic remission". I now have a fairly severe partial obstruction at the old resection site and a new area of mild disease activity near the ICV/TI area but still for the most part am symptom-free.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
