    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.
