I’ll try to keep it short and simple.
3 years abdominal pain right hand side. Started after E-Coli food poisoning.
Bowel movement erratic. Sometime yellow mucus all over.
Pain killers. Starving and laying down the only thing what relieves the pain.
CT scan. Negative.
Appendix removed as believed it could’ve been chronic/Grumbling Appendix.
Faecal Calprotectin raised. Normal level 50. Mine as come back 300+ on four different tests.
I’ve eventually got to see a gastroenterologist and he’s referred me for a pill camera. But he saying that it’s highly unlikely it will show anything because the CT scan is the best test. Is this true. As I’ve read a few times that this seems the best thing to view the small intestine. But he says the CT.
I insisted on the pill cam. But now I am thinking am I wasting my time after him saying that the CT would’ve shown something.
Any advice or pass similar experiences.
