Hello all! It's been years since I have been on this site. When I was really sick (2000-2005) I used to be here daily. I had diarrhea, bleeding and lower right pain for many years.
But After having two kids, I had NINE years of no Crohn's symptoms. I did have some GERD/reflux issues and an upper scope showed minor irritation.
So fast forward to this year, since May my blood work has shown I was anemic. And two weeks ago, an stool test showed blood I didn't even know I was bleeding. It's hidden in there. I also had upper right pain and sonogram ruled out gallbladder.
So, tomorrow is my colonoscopy (ugh #7 for me - but first time using the Miralax/Gatorade prep). Yes, I am typing as I prep.
My GI thinks my Crohn's may be back. But funny thing, I have been constipated for over a year! I thought Crohn's was mainly diarrhea. Anyone here have IBD-C??? I'd love to chat more! Thanks.
