Is it Crohns Disease?

my name is hansraji. I did a colonoscopy test and my doctor told me that i have a little colitis(crons disease). I often have lower belly pains. I often have diarrohea and my stool smells awful and sometimes yellowish. What is this? He put me on a tablet called asacol. I uses a tablet two times daily. I also have plenty joint pains.
Could you help me?

Re: Is it Crohns Disease?

Hi my son has crohns and has had it for 5 years. All the symptoms you are describing coinside with Crohns, Asocol is a medication to help with the inflammation, Crohns is very controlable, sometimes you may have to try different meds to see what helps, Joint pain is very common with this disease so don;t be alarmed, the Asocol should help.

Feel better soon.

I have Crohn's Disease and yes your symptoms sounds about right lol. I know how painful it can become but always let your doc know if your pain or other problems are not under controled. * Disallowed website removed by hb-mod, moderator *
