I got my colonoscopy results back today (the colonoscopy was on May 12). Although my colon looked normal, the biopsies showed that I still have inflammation. Also, my ilecoal valve is a tiny 7-8 mm in diameter. Does anyone happen to know what the diameter of a normal colon is? Or how small is too small?
I don't see my GI for another month or so. I plan on asking about strictureplasty and stents. Has anyone had either of these procedures done? I'd rather not have the valve cut out if at all possible.
