So how did you all get your crohns dx?
I used a bunch of different stuff:
I had a small bowel follow thru (a series of x-rays where they follow the barium down your gi tract)
regular Endoscopy (3 foot scope- EGD)
long (18 foot scope) Endoscopy
Unfortunately the Ct scans, regular xrays, and first colonscopy missed my disease areas...
How about blood tests you regularly get?
CBC-complete blood counts
liver function (because I am on Methotrexate)
