We went early this morning, she had her scope, her GI went as far up as the scope would take her (into the TI as well), she took biopsies from the TI, colon and rectom, she said her scope was completely clean, thank goodness, no indications so far of CD and definitely no UC going on with her...she's sending her next week for an ultrasound and will go from there...so far her GI says at this point as long as the biopsies don't show anything (or any of her blood work or the ultrasound next week) she figures it could be a severe case of IBS but is determined to check her thoroughly until she's satisfied my daughter doesn't have an IBD of any kind.  She seems very concerned my daughter has such ab pain with D.
Talk about relief!!!!  GI even gave us a copy of her pics with her findings from the scope, I must say this GI has impressed me so far and that's is not an easy task.
Well, I'm happy that I had good news to report, but kinda freaking about why my daughter has the symptoms she has with no inflammation (so far) so I'm just gonna keep my fingers and toes crossed that they will find an answer and a solution for her.
Thanks to all of you for your encouragment and support, it really helped me get through this.

PB4 maybe she needs to do a pillcam. Maybe if she does have IBD its in the small intestine where the scope can't reach. Its seems alot of folks here have had more luck getting diagnosed using the Pillcam. Sending healing thoughts your daughters way.

I'm glad to hear the good news for your daughter. Hopefully, no IBD. It sounds like you're in getting good care, and the Dr's have your confidence. 

Thanks for your reply, (Update: on my daughter Holly). I appreciate the support.


My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Initially, 9 weeks of Prednisone, currently taking 2000mgs of Pentasa.

Hope things stay that way... :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Thanks you guys!!

Nanners, she's going to do all the small bowel tests on her, she said she was determined to find out why she has the pain and the D...she said she wasn't thrilled about the idea of doing a CT scan because they have to use a lot of radiation and with her being so young (19 yrs) she hated the thought but we'd take every step needed to find out what is up with her symptoms, so I feel pretty confident that this doc is on the ball and will do the pill cam if she feels it necessary and thanks for the healing thoughts.

Excellent news! I am wondering if they have checked for an infection or parasite. The peanut contamination/salmonella problem just has me concerned -- especially for the Crohnies with D!
Diagnosed with rectal Crohn's in early 2007.  Several peri-rectal abscesses and two fistulae with setons.  Allergic to Remicade and Humira.  Currently on 6MP, and vitamins D and B-12.

Yup FallColors, daughter had nine viles of blood drawn so she's definitely thorough and I don't think the peanut butter contamination thing is what's going on with my baby, she hates peanut butter and she's been feeling this way for quite some time (well before the PB thing happend).
