I'm assuming coeliac disease has been ruled out?
If the colonoscopy doesn't get you anywhere, I'd ask about
having a balloon enteroscopy. It can take biopsies of the small bowel, which a capsule endoscopy can't do. There's two types of balloon enteroscopy: single and double. I think the double version is better for visualising the entire small bowel, but to be honest it's not a test I know a lot about
. It's not a test that's commonly performed, maybe 'cos Crohn's can usually be diagnosed without it.
Dx Crohn's in June 2000. (Yay )
Tried: 5-ASAs, azathioprine, 6MP, Remicade, methotrexate, Humira, diets.
1st surgery 20/2/13 - subtotal colectomy with end ileostomy.
2nd surgery 10/7/15 - ileorectal anastomosis. Stoma reversed and ileum connected to the rectum.
Current status: Chronic flare. Do I have any other kind?
Current meds: 50mg 6MP; Entyvio (started 3/11/16)
