Fruitcake - You have definitely been through so much more than me. However, I can understand your frustration. I went to the doctor in 2005 b/c I had blood and mucus in my stool. They performed a colonoscopy and found an infected area on my colon. After the biopsy results came back, the GI told me to finish the month of Colosal and I'd be finished. WELL. about 3 weeks ago, I began to bleed from my bottom and had diarrhea. Upon doing a flexoscopy, he said I had significantly progressed. The ulcerations were all the to my rectum and uniform. He thought it was UC. I had the Prometheus 7 test done and it came back Crohn's. Now that I know the areas it can affect, I know I even have it in the back of my throat. I am set to have a oral barium test done on Nov. 9 to see what damage there may be to my small intestine.
I am so frustrated that this was not caught in 2005. Why do they seem to lean toward the lesser and not go all out to find out what is wrong?!?
