heh yeah, its still the blanket statement. right now its my GI's way of saying "There is no visible crohns disease at the moment, so you have ibs". from july of last year til feb of this year ibs was to blame for everything, until they did a colonoscopy and found crohns disease. now that its "gone" he says that i have ibs as well. which he said after the scope? yeah, its one big ball of confusion. i honestly think my GI doesn't have a clue, but what can you do? Also my first meeting with him, he said, you have ibs, thats probably all it is, but were going to do a scope just to make you feel better. gotta love those docs.
