September 19th 2015 was a beautiful day in Jamaica. My fiancé and I had flown there to be married, and it was our wedding day. Almost immediately after saying “I Do” I started having horrible pains in my stomach. I thought at first my wedding dress was just too tight and I needed to get out of it as soon as possible. That night I continued to hurt so I decided to see the nurse and doctor on call at the resort. After pressing on my stomach she became very concerned with how tender I was. She started a morphine drip for pain and advised my new husband I needed to be sent to the hospital. Well, there is not enough morphine that could convince me to be admitted to a hospital in Jamaica so we flew back to the states the very next morning and I was immediately admitted to the hospital. I was told I had food poisoning or E.coli… After a few days of being in the hospital I was released. A few weeks later I went to the bathroom and there was so much blood, I almost passed out. I called the Gastro right away and had an Endo and Colonoscopy. When the procedure was completed he told my husband it was Crohns but he did a biopsy to be sure. He put me on Uceris, and I had my first follow up appointment yesterday. When I told him I am still bleeding, and having pain, but not quite as bad. He has now put me on prednisone and pentasa, and I am terrified of the side effects of the prednisone.
