Re: Crohns Treatment
I recently had a colonoscopy and the dr. said he saw no evidence of crohn's, Thank God! I wondered if it is always visible in a colonoscopy or if it might not show without a biopsy. I wasn't concerned really until recently when I had unexplained mouth sores. I never get cold sores, and these were on the inside of the lips and gums.They seemed to go from one side, heal, and go to the other side. A year ago I had a temp colostomy due to diverticulits. I had always had self-diagnosed IBS, rapid gastric emptying.. and just thought it was normal for me. I wonder if all that time I had been having flare-ups of diverticulits or something else (crohn's?), or if the continual cramping, etc. caused the diverticuli to form. I asked the dr. once, but he didn't really get what I meant. Any thoughts?
