colonoscopy next week/possibly crohn's
(indian land, sc)
Thinking back to when you first noticed changes in your body/possible crohns type symptoms, how often were you having flare ups? Mine are happening every other week or so. Started with a lot of D, and severe stomach bloating, lot of anal inflammation, and back pain. Crohns is in my family so I'm very scared to say the least. Went to ER on Saturday after 15 watery d's, trouble breathing and feeling so weak. Checked for blockage, but none, thank goodness. I had so much anal inflammation I'm guessing that it was so difficult for even my watery stool to pass thru. Earlier that day I was experiencing a lot of anal pain. I'm just so scared, I never knew how much people with crohns had to go thru. I'm ashamed I never researched the disease.
I just started to piece my life together after so many years of self denial and failure. Trying to think positive and find inner strength. Blessings to all of you and may everyone find their sense of peace and healing. I hope my colonoscopy goes well on the 24th and I will try to check back often.
