The pain and swelling seems to be coming from the ileum, which is attached directly to the rectal stump; AND also has stitching a little further up, where until 4 months ago there was a loop-ileostomy. A Crohn's diagnosis has already been made. All previous scopes have shown disease limited to the colon and rectum; this new pain brings the concern the disease has spread to the small intestine... and/or there is a structural problem in the section that was previously used for the loop-ileostomy.

problems with the intestinal stitching -
intestinal inflammation -
