Quick question

So I was diagnosed with Crohn's 13yrs ago by colonoscopy and biopsy. I never hardly ever have direhha but I do get fistulas and abseses on my back side but generally all my cramps come from the right side and upper abdoman and sometimes even left but for the most part it's generally upper abdoman cramps. If my Crohn's was diagnosed in the colon then why is most of my pain in the upper abdomen??

Your large intestines is considered your colon. On the right side is your ascending colon (this is where I have disease too) Take a look at this picture and see if it answers your questions at all
So my pain is all throught my colon!! Lol awesome I'm switching dr's going from a colorectal specialist were I've been for 13yrs to a gastro dr so I can get a more overall gi check up never been to one? Anyways I got to get my medical records sent to my new dr and I was just thinking I have no clue were my Crohn's is located never asked I know it's somewhere in my colon but were I have no clue hopefully after reviewing my medical records my new dr well be able to tell me a lil more about what I got and were at thanks so much!!!
Very interesting my problem is in my lower colon in the sigmoid/ rectum, although my pain is always in my lower right mostly at the back.
I get the pain there to but also upper and lower left maybe it's reared pain oh I also have a duodenal ulcer that may be a lot of my upper deal
