hey im 15 years old i was wondering if anyone can help me... i was in hospital 8 weeks ago with a suspeted appendicitas! they thought it was appendix so they did a lapascopic appendisectomy! well that all went well untill i woke up and still had the pain. The doctor said it could just be pain from the operation so i thought ok. He said it was only mildly inflammed. I had quite a bad reaction to the annathesic so i was in hospital for a week, i went home and i still had the pain and the diarrhea and occasionally sick. I've been back and forward to the doctors but they just put it down to the operation still. I started to have a really big fever and being sick and diarrhea again last weekend so my mum took me into hospital and i had to stay in for the weekend on a drip and medication anway they let me home and they said it was just a bug. This was untill i had to go back to the doctors two days ago with severe pain and mucus in my diarrhea/ very loose watery stools. Im also very tired all the time and very moody this is affecting my life a great deal and getting to the stage where i cant handle this anymore. anywayz two weeks ago i started to have blood and mucus in my diarrhea and this really scared me and i started crying so my mum took me to the doctors. the doctor was really concerned so he admitted me into hospital that when i had the full work of bloods and everything come back "normal" i was in alot of pain that i couldnt walk so i had to stay in hospital! i saw a gi doctor that eventually said i will have to have a colonoscopy done i had that a week after i got admitted it was the worst experience of my life and it was the worst pain ever!! the doctor took 7 biopsies and told us that from what we could see my colon was very inflammed what does this mean? i hav to go back in hospital on tuesday to find my biopsies results could anyone please me some important questions to ask? and what does inflammed colon mean? what should i do with my life if it is colitas or chrons how do i deal with it? if anyone could give me some advice i would really appreciate it sorry about the long post!:confused:
