I usually post on the IBS board, but went to my GP yesterday and he mentioned Chron's to me so I thought I'd some to a good place to ask some questions about it...
Okay...I was Dx with IBS-D a year and a half ago. Here are my symptoms...chronic diarrhea (everyday) that contains tons of mucus (grose, I know, but we can all relate here), I have not noticed any blood in stools. I don't have the appetite I once had and I fill up quickly. I have had tons of tests including colonoscopy, EGD, bowel series x-rays, CT scan, hida scan, ultrasounds, stool tests, & blood tests, etc. (My EGD did suggest a GERD Dx.)
I went to my GP yesterday and he seems to believe that it sounds like I possibly could have Chron's. I told my Dr. that I do not see any blood in my stools. He said that it may not matter. I suppose everybody is different with symptoms of Chron's?
What tests exist (besides a colonoscopy) that may suggest Chron's as a Dx?
Is there anybody that has Chron's that DOES NOT have blood in stools, but have tons of mucusy mixed stools that is large in volume??
Thanks for your input...it is really appreciated! I will talke all of the advice I can get.
