I am not too sure if the institution does CT enteroclysis or if it is the test where they insert the tube through the nose. The test is scheduled for Tuesday morning so I have time on Monday to call the hospital to verify what type of exam it is. I am now hoping that it is the CT type that you mention. That seems like it would be much easier to take.
My doctor tells me that this will give a better indication of what type of stricture that I have. Either it is just an inflamation where the meds might take care of it or if it is actually scared which and that would need to be surgically removed.
I have had several instances in the past few months where I know that it was something that I ate that cause the blockage. I ended up not being able to pass anything and ended up throwing up afterwards. The doctor treated that with the prednisone, flagyl, pentasa and levaquin. It just happened again several weeks ago so he put me on the same medication. In addition to the Entocort. I actually have a gut feeling that I will have to have the surgery because the first round of medication should have taken care of it if it were just an inflamation and not a scared type of stricture.
