The small bowel follow-through confirming no CD in the small intestine doesn't mean one doesn't have CD in the colon if symptoms aren't improved by the usual UC meds and it's suspected it's CD and not UC. It would just mean it's not happening in the small colon.
I think if your daughter is having upper GI symptoms that aren't improving to have her checked out from stem to stern..so to say.
You'd have to discuss it with the doc beforehand to make sure the time-slot is appropriate.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... increased enemas to nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
