Hello! A friend of mine suggested this website to me and I am happy with what I am finding. I am 28 yrs old and possibly have Crohn's. Last month I went in to the Dr for abdominal pain, his first thinking was that it was IBS but he ordered a CT scan to rule out anything else. The scan came back as the majority of my Ileum as well as the begining of the large intestine (cant think of what it is called) are inflamed and thick. I saw a GI Dr on Fri and am going to get a colonoscopy on Thursday to confirm the diagnosis. She said that it looks like Crohns but it could be a virus, a CT is not 100%.
So that is where I am now. I feel pretty good during the day but night times are a little rough. Im not having diareah at this point (did have some when I saw the Dr the first time) and have not had any bleeding. My biggest complaint thus far is the pain and cramping and the general crummyness feeling.
Any advice is welcome....questions to ask the Dr and such. Seems that some of you have a lot of experience.
