Alana had her GI follow-up today and we got the pathology report. In a nutshell, she has inflammation and bacterial overgrowth throughout her entire digestive system. The doctor won't officially diagnose this as IBD based on this report but he admits it is a possibility. Interestingly enough, Alana has been great this past week and after the colonoscopy prep she has been more "normal." He said that's common but don't expect it to last. So, our action plan for now is to continue with her symptom diary (which he will take a look at during her next visit) and follow up with behavioral health (he is keeping the IBS diagnosis as well). As soon as she has more than 2 loose BMs a day or starts to feel bad she'll start a round of antibiotics. If it continues the next step is to start a medication called 5-ASA, which I admit I don't know a whole lot about. He faxed it in to the pharmacy because he seems to think she'll likely need it before our next visit at the end of March.
So, while we don't have an official diagnosis.....we're close!
