Hi everyone. I have Crohn’s I was in the ER last Wednesday because I felt miserable and they did a CT scan showing inflammation in my cecum. I started pain meds and steroids (medrol dose pack because prednisone never works for me.) I had to go back to the ER this week to get admitted Monday due to not getting any relief. I was in the hospital for three days this week. I had a colonoscopy and endoscope the last day I was in the hospital. The GI doctor said there wasn’t any inflammation, but believes I have IBS as well as the Crohn’s.
The biopsies came back today and everything looks good and there isn’t anymore inflammation. I have some questions.
1. Does anyone have a mild case of Crohn’s? If so, what do you take to help you? I tried Stelara but had a horrible reaction and had to stop it. I’m not sure what my doctor will put me on next. I’m thinking Humira.
2. Does anyone have Crohn’s and IBS? If so, what do you take to keep it under control and what do you take for pain and flare ups?
3. Has anyone had a colonoscopy come out normal, but has Crohn’s?
