Sep 29, 2018 · Mesenteric Panniculitis or Sclerosing Mesenteritis in Digestive Health

I had a laparoscopy which seems to be the same thing as a keyhole exam. During the procedure they saw the thickening but did not diagnose me. I as well had a CT scan that showed thickening around the bowel Mesentery. My symptoms are cramping in the abdomen as well. Not sure why I couldn’t get a diagnosis! One thing that seems different with me is I have bilateral pleural effusions with unknown cause. Has anyone else had this? Thank you for the feedback!

I have not been officially diagnosed. I was discharged from 10 day inpatient stay with no answers today. I found this disease by reading my The impression from the radiologist on my CT scan. One doctor that I saw suggested I go to Mayo Clinic because they will better understand and have the ability to diagnose. I was discharged with tramadol and prednisone.

Sep 29, 2018 · Possible Sclerosing Mesenteritis in Autoimmune Diseases

While I have been in the hospital the medication Torodol has helped the most. Although because it is an NSAID and I have peptic ulcer disease they stopped giving it to me. I am now on morphine and tramadol which are helping manage the pain but once I am discharged I will be back in constant pain. I do not want to take pain meds daily. I still have not been diagnosed. And if biopsy’s come back negative I will be discharged with NO answers.

I am currently inpatient at a hospital I got admitted from the emergency room. It has been 10 days now and I have had an EGD, Chest x-ray, CT scan of abdomen and pelvis with contrast, a laparoscopy, and countless amounts of blood tests. The doctors tell me I have something very rare and she has never seen it her entire career. Biopsies were taken during the laparoscopy and I am still waiting on results to see if it is cancerous. I am not being told much so I reviewed some of my procedures to see if I can get answers. I found that the radiologist may think it is sclerosing Mesenteritis Which was found in my CT scan. Every other test has come back unremarkable, the only thing they see is thickening of the Omentum But are unable to find an underlying cause. They also found I have bilateral plural effusion, which they performed thoracentesis to remove the fluid In the right side plural space. It was tested and found negative for malignancy unable to find the cause of why the fluid was there. I decided to go to the emergency room after having excruciating pain in my abdomen for about a month and difficulty breathing which turns out to be from the pleural fluid. The pain in my abdomen started off on my lower left side but has really moved all around. The pain seems to get worse at night and in the morning. I am a 42 year old male with no major medical history besides a ruptured esophagus that has been repaired. I also have peptic ulcer disease and just discovered I also have H. Pylori. Has anyone else been diagnosed with sclerosing Mesenteritis? What where your symptoms? I feel like I am going to leave the hospital with no answers or help because they can’t officially diagnose me.
