Susan, that is so strange that you wrote this about this area. I have severe adhesions for the past 17 years and last year started having GI problems so went to a Gastro doc and he did a colonoscopy and said the ileum/cecum area has colitis looking inflammation and he mentioned Crohn's, but wasn't really sure. I went to another GI doc today for a second opinion (been in a lot of pain lately) and he is doing another colonoscopy in two days to see for himself what is going on. I did have to have a sm. bowel resection 2 years ago for obstruction due to adhesions. The pain I am currently having is right-sided, right about where your appendix is, but I had that out 5 years ago, so I know that isn't it. I will post again after I find out what is going on....

Good luck!!
