That's exactly what I have been trying to get them to test for. Crohns
was the first thing I thought of when a pattern of symptoms started with him.
One Dr. said "no", looking at his CT but, the surgeon is going to
try to evaluate that when he does exploratory on Thursday. He read
the CT scan yesterday and was concerned. First thing he said was
could be early in Crohns Disease, need to R/O.
Finally someone who is paying attention to detail.

I know how bad Crohns is and I hope it can be ruled out.
Thanks for asking. You must know someone who has it also.
Thank you for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers.

Yes Ginger, I have chron's disease. By reading what little I did that is the first thing that came to my mind. Chron's is very very hard to see on a CT scan a small bowel follow through would be a better option. It would show any strictures or thicking of the bowel. A biopsy is the only true way to dx chron's. They found my chron's disease through exploratory surgery as well. Then followed through with a colonoscopy when they saw where it was. I sure hope he does not have chron's, if he does at least it will be an answer and he can start treatment. (((((HUGS)))))
You can PM me at any time. I am a nurse as well.
