colonoscopy good or bad???
i am 20 years old and have had crohns for 4 years , i had one major flare up when i was diagnosed with it and then for 2 years i was fine but stopped taking my pentasa, now in september 2009 i had another flare up reaching 50 on crc results and after 7 weeks on steriod treatment i still reaching 50 on crc results.....
my doctor has spoken about having another baruim to see if surgery is the answer, i have read about this surgery colonoscopy and how some people have woken up in night in tears and pain due to sticthes coming open inside....others say after there is no difference pain is still there
i live a very active lifestyle working everyday from 4am-3pm then breakdance in the evenings (which puts alot of pressure on my stomach) going to sleep at 11.30 every night......
is surgery good or bad? i hate the thought of them doing surgery and then in 5 months time another flare up happens all the pain for nothing??
