I usually flare in the same areas where you have the disease. I had a colonoscopy, but I have a stricture there, and the doc couldn't get through to see it. Then, he sent me for an Upper GI/SBFT. It didn't show much inflammation there, but it did show the stricture. THEN, I was admitted to the hospital over Thanksgiving, and they did an abdominal CT scan, and it showed inflammation all over the place. I wish they would have done the CT scan first, since I had battled with the pain for months. It's always such a long process that I have to go through before the doctor will do any other treatments. Very frustrating!!
