I just got back from having my endoscopcy, Dr said it looked like someone had taken something sharp to the inside of my stomach completely blood red inside leisures and I now have several large alsurs. He said he may need to do surgery to burn these off. He did I biopsy and says there is possible crohns in the stomach also but he was hoping not. Told me not to worry,I'm completely off entocort now. He has prescribed me some horse pills I guess some good antibiotics. So much for social drinks on vacation huh. The gerd/reflux is causing all this problem I believe.
Not to worry, oh okay. Has anyone got the crohns disease in the stomach also. I'm off to sleep off these drugs.
Take care everyone.

Ouch, that sounds painful Kathy. Well at least now you know whats going on inside. I dont have the CD in my stomach, hopefully someone comes along with some advice for you on that.
Hope you have a good sleep :)

CD of the stomach is pretty rare. I have heard thats it like only 5% of Crohnnies who have that. I am hoping you are not one of the 5%. The steroids always cause my Acid Reflux/Gerd to get worse while I am on them. Hopefully getting off of them will heal your insides. I agree with SydneyJo, OUCH!!! Rest well!
