Well the moment of truth has arrived. After 10 months going from doctors to doctors and changing GI specialists i had my very first colonoscopy today. Let me tell you preparing for it was really hard. And you know what even preparing for it i was constipated. Yes a lot came out but i always felt like there was something stuck and wouldnt come out. I dont know what that means...lol
Well i had the colonoscopy and i wasnt sleeping at all. The drugs they gave me didnt help. I actually watched them do it on the computer screen and wow pretty neat stuff. I saw red...blue...green....wierd stuff. Well after it was done the Gi told me there was inflamation. He said it was mild. I asked him if its Crohns. He said if it is its mild and it can be treated. So im guessing that is his way of saying im gonna suffer for a very long time.
He also asked me what my symptoms were since this started. I told him pain on the left side of abdomen and then right side of abdomen. I told him i noticed mucus. Never experienced diarrea. Was tested for blood in stool and that didnt show any blood at all. He took biopsy and he will wait for the results in that. He said i have to do a fat fecal stool test. I have to do that with having 100 grams of fat for 3 days. But im confused do i just dump all the stools in there or do i put them in a bad and label them...the nurse didnt really explain it to me. I also told him that the Flagly worked and he was very surprised.
Well im glad i finally am going somwhere. I cant believe how the other GI's just told me IBS by my symptoms and said no other test was necessary. One laughed at me and said its not that serious. The other told me he isnt god and there is not much he can do. I ask him about tests and he said its not necessary your blood work is fine. I wanna go back and beat the living day lights out of them. It pisses me off that i threw up 10 times in a row and they tell me its IBS. Its like they are selling this syndrome and give you a phamplet and drugs like zelnorm or dicetel.
Well i guess im gonna have to post in the crohns section now. But im gonna post here and there because you guys helped me a lot.
Well let me know about your opinions
