What could my gastroenterological condition be?

This question was asked in Carlisle, Minnesota on 05/23/2012.
I've had 2 colonoscopies in the last 6 months, the surgeon has been unable to get through to the ileum due to resistance and a slight constriction. I started with V/D bloody stools at x's in October. This has been resolved and I've been asymptomatic for any GI issues. The 2nd scope was a fu, this done yesterday. I've also had 2 CT scans that showed some inflammation in the area but the second showed much improvement (10cm to 4 cm). Biopsies have been negative. What could this be, the Dr. is stumped, I've a hx of Stage 1.5 breast cancer in 2006, trt. lumpectomy, chemo, radiation.

It sounds as if you have many details to your case at this time. Please speak to your doctor to see if a referral to another physician is in order.

This may be related to Crohn's disease and I would request to be seen by a gastroenterologist so they can evaluate you.
