Hi all, just a update about me.
I went to see my GI with my CT scan results which showed a considerable amount of thickening ( 20cm) of my Terminal Ilium, my GI is 95 % sure i have Crohns so im booked in to have both scopes done on the 24th April.
I have also been having very severe joint pain to the stage that nothing i take helps at all.
I have been changing my diet a lot as there are so many foods that give me pain after i eat them, well in fact there is not much that i can eat without getting pain after, i have lost 12 kgs since the end of jan this year and thats also a concern as im not a big person to start off with.
Thanks for reading this, good health and DRY FARTS to you all

PS The 24th april is also our 24 Wedding Aniersery so what a nice way to spend it.

Hi Fiona, it sounds like you're well on your way to diagnosis and I wish you lots of luck on the 24th. Just think, it could potentially be both your wedding anniversary and your diagnosis anniversary! At least that way both will be easy to remember, right?

Best of luck with the scopes and please keep us posted! I hope you get some answers and can get started on treatment and get some relief.
