About this time last year I experienced pains in myside. I kept putting it down to something I ate or pulled muscle (have two small children) july last year I visited hospital to see what it might be 48 hours later I was on the operating table cut from tummy down having ma appendix and a large mass removed. After a while in hospital they said that I could have crohns and that I must have been suffering for sometime. I honestly wasn't. I have been back to the hospital a few times this year having colonoscopy and more blood tests than I care to mention but they are still saying it is suggestive of crohns now I have to have an Mri scan. My question really is this normal procedure for someone to get diagnose with crohns? I have been given very little information I have research the internet and have read about symptoms and flare ups. Most information suggest that surgery is the last option. My concern is how often do flare ups happen is there any warning is there anything I can do to stop it and does a diagnosis always take along time. I am fearful that this is taking over my life. Thank you in advance.
