Help is this crohn's?
I am desperate! My almost 8 year old has been sick since she was five. It started with a vague stomach ache that turned into excruciating bouts of pain. I thought it was appendicitis but they kept finding other infections and would give her tons of antibiotics and she would be fine. The last bout i made them give her a cat scan it was appendicitis and it had ruptured. I thought ok we are fixed it was the appendix all along. No it started again right after she got better from the surgery and infection. This brought us to the pediatric gastro. Test after test has showed nothing she is scheduled for a colonoscopy next Monday. These are her symptoms terrible stomach pain that lortab wont take away, bouts of diarrhea that sometimes has no color, bouts of fatigue, she is either freezing or is having hot sweaty flashes, she had blood this week it was just a little but it had the consistency of mucous, she says her bowels feel like they are on fire and crampy. This last bout she lost five pounds and can't put it back on. I have to carry a bag of pain pills wherever we go cause you never know when it is going to hit. Could this be crohn's? I would appreciate any comments. Thank you for your time!
