About 10 years ago I started having bowel problems with pain before, during and after bowel movements which progressively got worse. I had had bouts with the same problems all my life (short term) constipation and diarhhea. I went to different drs. and was hospitalized 3 times, had surgery for a hernia but when they opened me up there was no hernia. All the tests came back negative. I went to Chief of Surgery at the University of Tennessee and he gave me the pillcam and it showed about a foot of colon at the ileum showed Crohns. It took about a year to get it under control using different combination of meds, but finally it went into remission. I am doing really good now I still take one of the meds but only have minor problems occasionally. @blzeitlin
