I have been on prednisone ... 40mg for 5 weeks now and ahve been having chronic lower left abdominal pain. My insurance waiting period just lifted for pre-existing conditions so just had a CT Scan. It came back normal as was my blood tests and C-Reactive Protien. He said that he thinks my issues are not Crohn's related but Gyno related. I explained that I had that checked out a year ago and had ultrasounds and they ruled out any GYN issues. I also have mouth ulcers when I have GI inflmammation that he would see in his notes but I forgot to mention in our appt.
I'm frustated ... I am scheduled for a colonoscopy in a month ... he is tapering me down from prednisone and we decided for me to cut our dairy and to contunie to eat a bland, soft diet. My Imuran tests for how my theraputetic levels will come in next week.
SHould I get a second opinion?
