Going to the Hospital

Well, after a post that I did a couple of days ago came about, someone had mentioned to me that I could possibly have Chrones Disease. Now this disease runs in my family, and I don't think that I have it, but there is most surely something going on with my abdomen. I have been getting sicker and sicker of the years, and I have gotten to the point where I always need to know where a bathroom is at all times. I know that after I eat something, my stomach hurts and I have to get it out before I can go anywhere. So, William and I have decided to go to the hospital tonight after I get off work to see what the doctor has to say and how much of a bill that I can ring up. Wish me luck....


  • best of luck to you , please keep us posted as to what you find out....take care....Miki
  • Hopefully, it won't be Crohn's, and maybe just an inability for you to tolerate certain ingredients in certain types of foods...? I have my fingers, toes, legs and eyes crossed for you. (i'll uncross them all just long enough to make my commute home from work this afternoon)

    Please, let us know how things turn out for you!
  • :) please let us know the results. i am sorry you are not feeling well. the forum members are here for you at any time. all the best! Jenny :)

    Good luck, Jim

  • Hang in there and I pray they get you some relief!

  • Well, the hospital tries charging you $170 up front if they don't consider it an emergency, so we ended up leaving...I am going to try to go to the health department on Thursday after my NS visit to find out the results of my latest MRIs...
  • my wife was just diagnosed with chrones. she had the scope and they found inflamation in her intestines. they also took a biopsy. she was give one med, sorry can't remember the name and they said if it did not work as well they would start her on a series of cortesone meds. she also suffers from moderate pain for which they gave her vicodin
    good luck, and any questions feel free to pm me and i can ask my wife
    I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
  • Has anyone mentioned IBS? "Irritable Bowel Syndrome" I know someone who has this and has the exact same symptons as you do. Now what I have never been really sure of is whether this is a true syndrome or if dosctors are using it as a catch all for something they can'y diagnose. There is so much controversy between doctors over this I don't know who to believe. I'm just wondering if this has been brought up? Also, have you tried taking the OTC anti-diarrheal med's prior to leaving the house or eating? The person that I know, this is what the doctor has her do and it does help her quite a bit. Good luck!
