Not likely: Your case sounds complicated. Appendicitis can occur in any clinical situation and is treatable, curable and occasionally has serious complications. Crohn's is not curable, frequently has serious complications, and your health care team will be very happy if you don't have it. As doctors we search for the diagnosis that explains the clinical situation, we are not always correct. Be well.
