Hi, I havent posted for a while but hope you are all well.. I have a few questions if anyone out there can help.. I have crohns disease and am currently on Azathioprine, infliximab and pentasa.. I had another colonscopy on monday and it showed that the ileocaecal valve is stenosed and would not admit the scope!! I have no idea what this means.. It also said that there was redness!!  Im not seeing my specialist until January and was hoping maybe someone would know what this stuff means..
Thankyou any info will be appreciated..

It means its narrowed. Sounds like you have a stricture.

If the stricture is from inflammation medications such as Prednisone and the other meds you are using should get it back under control. If meds don't work usually it means that it is caused by scar tissue and no meds will help with that.

I think you should try to at least call your doctor and talk to him about it instead of waiting until your appt.

Good luck,
