    it makes me wonder too about where is he having problems? We got second opinion once in 2015 (after his diagnosis) at University of Michigan. They confirmed his Crohn's diagnosis.

    No pill cam because doctor did not see any problem with MRE. He said, everything looks good. And to top it, my son said.., i'm perfectly fine. I do not have any issues. So, there was no reason from myside to push for more tests. Doctor wants to perform a repeat cal pro. I can ask for c-diff or...
