I spoke to both my GI and surgeon yesterday and my GI again today; they’re still not sure what this is. My stool test came back negative for infection which has left them a bit baffled as to why I’m responding to the IV antibiotics. They suspect it could be Crohn’s but they won’t know until my biopsy results are back.
So, the plan for now is to stop the antibiotics and observe while starting me on modulen tomorrow. If, like me, you have never heard of it, modulen is a nutrition replacement drink that comes in powder form. It’s used to treat children with Crohn’s but they have started giving it to adults more as well. It’s apparently good for small bowel inflammation and most people use it for a few months to give their bowel a rest.
Currently, I am on Fortisip drinks for the rest of today but I don’t know if I’ll have anything else. I had cheesey potato and leek soup earlier and ice cream but I have a feeling I won’t get that again this evening.
Hopefully, I’ll fine out more tomorrow.
