Well from what it sounds like at least you are feeling better? I too seem to flare during the holidays. I tend to identify the holidays with a certain amount of stress which in turn has an impact on my gut. It's tough to avoid.
The mucus is usually typical of active crohns. I guess you could consider constipation a form of obstruction. It might be a symptom of something else. Pain meds slow you down and can cause constipation not sure if you are on them...
It is frustrating when a dr tells you that there isn't an issue since the bloodwork came back with in range. I too had some bloodwork done recently and the CRP was raised. It was with in 'range' so he waived it off. I have a feeling it's tied to Crohns. I don't understand how any inflammation falls with in a normal range. I would think ANY inflammation is a reflection of something wrong.
On a little bit different perspective...if your leg was broken wouldn't your bloodwork come back fine even tho your leg is broken? Blood work isn't the all seeing answer. I think some docs just don't know what to do besides check temps, poke and prod and do the bloodwork. Get another dr or specialist.
Sorry kind of went off on a rant there going thru some stuff of my own. In any case I'm sorry to read that you've been going thru so much in a short period of time. Sounds like 2015 has really sucked.
I don't believe a CT can really do a good job on verifying whether Crohns is active or not. Pain, mucuos, gut noises, etc... kind of sounds like active flare to me. If you had surgery on your gut to remove the Crohns it very well could be your gut is still healing. If the issue continues a scope might be ordered just to get a good idea of what is really going on. I don't know your history but you should be on some sort of maintanence drug at least which should be helping you even if the Crohns has been removed.
Good luck and just try to take it one day at a time. You'll get it figured out and in time there will be better days ahead.
