I was diagnosed with crohn’s disease last month. It took doctors a year to decide to do a colonoscopy on me, which did not go well. The procedure had to be aborted due to severe inflammation.. and she didn’t even make it a third of the way through. Biopsies were taken which confirmed crohn’s, and i’ve since had a ct scan and abdominal radiographs. The ct scan showed that the entire length of my large intestine are affected as well as a portion of the small intestine. I was on Prednisone for almost and entire month along with Mesalamine, and was weaned off a week ago Thursday. This past week, Tuesday, I started with a fever, and the urgency, and frequency of my BM’s is much worse and there is blood present in almost every one. I got in to see my GI on Thursday, she restarted me on a lower dose of Pred and ran some tests to rule out infection. Today is Monday. Saturday my fever came back, and although it’s much lower, it is still present. Last night before bed I took a whole imodium tablet and i still had to rush to the bathroom multiple times throughout the night. I’m at a loss. My husband tells me I just have to wait it out. But I’m miserable, confused, scared and I don’t know what to do. My doctor says so casually that it’s just a flare up but I’m so new to this, i have no idea what to expect or how to cope either. Please, any advice or helpful tips would be GREATLY appreciated.
