New to this group, however I did post in Abdominal Disorders. I have had diarreah for 13 months. Eight months ago, it went from just bad diarreah to watery diarreah. Uncontrollable and have many accidents; don't always get a warning, just runs out. The shower has become my bidet! Had a colonoscopy and endoscopy in August, 2016. Endo fine and had 4 polyps, one which was quite large and cancerous, but says he got all of it. Has mentioned Crohns, but I thought that would show up with colonoscopy. Have taken 10 days of Flagyl at 1500 mgs daily, now on Cholestryramine Powder. Thought the powder was working, since I went 6 days without diarreah, but have had it now for 5 days straight. All this time, the only pain I have is in lower rh quadrant, sort of over th appendix area. However, have had pain there a long time and have been told it is adhesions, and nerve entrapment from mesh implants dure to several hernia repairs. Everytime, Sometimes pain is worse in rh side during diarreah days and occassionally not. Last 3 days, I have had major pain from under rh ribs above kidney area and goes into lower rh side at same area as always hurts. I don't get stomach cramps, but have a lot of gas in rectum with pressure and constant feeling of having to have bowel movement.
Also had gallbladder out 3 weeks ago due to gallstones that were found on CT scan. All seems fine with the surgery. Was told it would not help my diarreah problem. I have lupus too and have been on a lot of prednisone over past 20 years, but for last 13 months have not had to take it at all as lupus has calmed down for first time in 20 years.
I know Crohns can affect different areas of the bowel, however, don't know how it is detected.
Question: If not seen during coloonoscopy, then how is it found?
