When I was 18, I started having issues. That year I had my first colonoscopy, and the dr took a biopsy that suggested crohns, but due to insurance I couldn't do any other test to confirm. I managed to stabilize on my own for about 8.5 years. But last august I started having all the symptoms back. Went in and had an MRI done and another colonoscopy in December. My gastro told me, while I had some markers he wasn't convinced. So, today, after suffering with nausea for the last 11 months I finally got back in to see him. That's when he told me, with my biopsy, my positive MRI and my erosion on the colonoscopy that I was officially diagnosed as crohns.
Now he wants to run an ultrasound on my gallbladder and do an upper endoscopy to make sure it hasn't affected anywhere else. (MRI shows thickening of the illieum)
How many people have had nausea, sharp stabbing and back pain as gallbladder issues? I'm just curious if he's on the right track, my insurance is awful and can't afford to spend more money than necessary
