hi, daughter (19) but still my baby, had colonoscopy last week and we were told it was uc left side mild, pathologhy came back yesterday inidicating chron's in lower recyum now she needs small bowel work up. i need to know what other tests to ask for does she need an endosocpy i can't stan this piece meal nonesense just want to get it don fast. I had to find out the pathology from my internist ,the gastro is too busy to return phone calls.
any way mos t important right now is her PAIN. He sent her back to school after thanksgiving on asacol she reallly wants to finish the semester only 2 and 1/2 weeks left. Going all night long with blood and lots of pain in between bouts. How long before this asacol will work? HELP me if there is an answer. The Jerk DR. hasn't called back for 2 days now we keep leaving messages that she is in PAIN and want to know what do do for it. anybody know what could help, of course we will ask the Jerk who will be history as soon
as she gets home. I have an appointment lined up with Dr Dchirl but she is determined to get through finals. It kills me that he is registered with the ccfa and has no respect for the newness of the situation. and his secretary tells us she's very busy, like i really want to be making this call...idiot-thanks for listening answer to questions mixed in would be great

Sorry you and your daughter are going through all of this. Asacol takes at lease three weeks to work. Is she having diarrhea? Many doctors use Prednisone or Entocort to settle down the inflamation and help with the symptoms until the Asacol can kick in. Other possible tests include the camera swallow test that can tell you if she is having problems in her small intestine, the barium small bowel work-up, and possibly an endoscopy. I also had a Promethus labs serology 7 blood test the confirmed the Crohn's diagnosis. Tell your daughter not to use Advil or any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory meds as it will make her bleed more. My doctor gave me Vicodin for the pain, and I only needed it a couple of times, but it really helped. My doctor is bad about returning phone calls too and it drives me pretty crazy, but he seems knowledgable and I like him when I do speak with him, so I'm hesitant to switch. Let us know how your daughter is doing!

if she is in pain, you can take her to an er. or- sit in his his office until he acknowledges you. this is not acceptable.

I agree a trip to the emerg. might help get the pain eased some at least they can check the bloodwork to see if that is alright and yah the pred is helpful when things get bad. Sorry your so upset and I can uderstand your frustrations with getting the DR.'s help. Hope she feels better soon. lol gail

Oh Please

I am so sorry that your daughter is having a hard time right now but things will get better. I know how hard it is to watch a your daughter suffer with pain I tell you we have enough to deal with as it is. There are so many of us that deal with pain thanks to this DD.I do agree that she needs to see a doctor there is no reason for your daughter ro havew to suffer with bad pain.I would contact her PCP doctor and explain to him/her that yor daught is in bad pain and see if they will give her something for pain.I would all like to say that you may want to ask for a referral to a pain clinic.i hope that she gets to feel better soon,
