Its possible. Nothing is impossible, only highly improbable. On the other hand, the colonoscopy could be wrong, even the biopsy could be wrong and so could the SBFT. NONE of these medical tests are 100% accurate and reliable. They're just the best that the doctor's have at their disposal.
Back in 1976, even if colonoscopies had even existed then, they would NEVER have found my Crohn's if they'd done 100 of them because my Crohn's was confined to one small area in the MID ILEUM. Three SBFT's did indicate that SOMETHING was going on BUT the locals had no idea what it was or how to recognize Crohn's disease if they even knew what it was. It took a SBFT at Mayo Clinic in MN to Dx my Crohn's. And to know how to treat it.
As recently as 1999, neither a local colonoscopy nor a local SBFT indicated Crohn's activity, yet less than a month later a Mayo SBFT found and Dx'd not only active inflammation at the old resection site but also that my Crohn's had finally invaded my TI near the ICV. In fact, it was another 3 years or so before local colonoscopy could detect the inflammation at the TI/ICV that Mayo's SBFT found in 1999.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
