If there is inflammation on the right hand side I have Chrohns Disease.If there isn't any Inflammation I only have IBS and Piles.UC can be ruled out as I don't have rectal inflammation.Alternatively my UC could be in remission and I am bleeding from the Piles - depending on the biopsies but this is least likely.Pray for me people, I am so worried.
PS: Does anyone know what the Clipper drug is and it's side effects? He said if I have it I only need to take it for a month!
Diagnosis in October 2007: Non Specific Colitis (possible UC but not confirmed) (Mild inflammation on Rectum, Plus some patchy inflammation on Right side of Colon).
Medication Still taking: 800mg Mesalazine (Asacol) 3 times a day
Symptoms: Colitis Remission, last had black stools but it might have been something I ate, Asprin, or an infection as it has cleared up.
Diagnosis: Oct 07 - Non Specific Colitis (possible UC or Chrohn's but biopsy not confirmed by 2 seperate GI's) (Mild inflammation on Rectum, Plus some patchy inflammation on Right side of Colon).
Medication Still taking: 800mg Mesalazine (Asacol) 3 times a day appear to have stopped working.
Symptoms: Jun 08 - Bleeding returns with diarrhoea after taking meds for stomach ulcer. Sigmoidoscopy in June rules out rectal inflammation, Colonoscopy planned for August. (Doctor hinting it's Piles and IBS). No pain, no other symptoms.
