How are you feeling as of today? No pain, D, C, bloating, etc.?
I don’t know how long biopsy results take, but shouldn’t you know something by now? And what does “mild Crohn’s” mean? I thought you either had it or you didn’t. Guess I’ll look into that one.
The poop collecting is such an unpleasant experience… IMO there are few things worse. BUT hopefully it will help the docs out in diagnosing you. If you want to talk poop collecting you could probably get lots of helpful info from Sarita. She’s been doing the same as you; collecting poops on a daily basis. That reminds me, are you rushing to the lab immediately after collecting? Sarita mentioned to me she had a time limit from when it was collected to when it had to be at the lab. How annoying and inconvenient, but apparently poop is time sensitive.
What Keri says is true, you can lose weight with Crohn's. I think 1 of the few reasons Crohnies don't lose weight, or they actually gain weight, is because of their meds. Steroids (Prednisone) is notorious for causing weight gain.
Hope you get your results soon. Good luck!
