Hi it's  a long shot when u get told u have gaseous distension of colon is that'd  classed as crohn's disease? Or something  eles I'm  seeing  a specialist in November  but not 100% sure what to put on the forms i have prove i stayed in hospital for a week when i was really bad with it!.

    Hi @Anthony1987
    Sorry to hear you were ill in hospital, though crohns disease can cause a distension of the colon, there are lots of other causes so I wouldn't put any specific disease down unless you have been formally diagnosed with it.  Though you can of course explain all your symptoms and how they affected you. I hoep this helps, let us know how you get on.
