I realize how crazy this sounds but please hear me out. I want everyone to be aware of this regardless if you believe in conspiracy oriented accusations such as this or not. The truth is, these things happen on a daily basis and we need to be aware so it does not happen to us, again. So firstly I want to start by saying I am a 27 year old male. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease at the young age of 10. They told me I was lucky to have had it found so early in life. "Blah, blah, blah take these extremely damaging medications for the next 8 years of your life". Of course I took the meds, which ended up being 15 pills a day until I was old enough to make my own decisions. If you are wondering what the meds were I can recall a few; Asacol, Purenithol, and a multitude of steroids. So, here comes the good part. I was basically cured of Crohns at the age of 18. Against all of the doctors nagging advice, I stopped taking all medications. I have not taken a single prescription for my disease to this day. So, 9 years without any medicine even though the doctor continues to push Humira and Purenithol onto me. I have lived a perfectly healthy life since taking myself off of the medication other than bad hips and knee pain which comes from years of medication. Despite this good health, my doctor insists that I get my FIFTH scope done at the age of 27. So, like an annoyed child, I finally gave in and got it done. The procedure went as normal as any other despite the disgusting crap juice we have to drink prior. The problem came early the morning after the scope. I woke up with a sore side and a nice goose egg on my lower left abdomen. Turning the light on I noticed a knot and a nice black bruise. After a few days of it not going away I went to see my doctor wherein I was promptly giggled at at told that a swollen lymph node is common in reaction to a scope. (even though this was my fifth one and my first swollen node on my abdomen) So, I went home moderately relieved that it was not serious but the worst was yet to come. My crohn's came back in full force for the first time in almost a decade. It has been nearly two months since my scope and I STILL have a swollen node, painful bowl movements, cramps, and you guessed it; blood in my stool. I have absolutely no other explanation for this occurring beyond the fact that it all started immediately after my recent scope two months ago. I am scheduling a doctors appointment again but I bet you can guess exactly what will happen. A patient that refuses to buy overpriced meds that ruins your body has suddenly become a customer again. Call me crazy if you want but this is not the first time I have caught a doctor securing their next doctors visit. I wish I had more time to explain but I am tired of typing for now. To summarize; Perfect health for 9 years with very minimal symptoms to immediate relapse after my fifth scope with frequent bloody stools and a swollen lymph node for 2 months. I refused medicine and allowed myself to heal naturally and it worked. I refused medicine along the way and now I am being forced to consider my options. Hopefully someone out there can relate or offer an opinion. Please try not to name call for my crazy thoughts on the matter. There is more that goes with it but I am simply too tired to type more. Best of luck to everyone.
