Hi, Mike: during my lunch walk, I was thinking maybe MikeB will be able to answer my question, because I remember you answered a different but somewhat related question quite a while ago. Thank you!
Yes, I do have long term remission (13 years) and last 2 colonoscopy came back negative. Unfortunately they did not do a biopsy during the last 2 scopes, because the GI doctors did not see anything there in the colon.
The following is an excerpt from a CCFA publication on Page 317: Inclusion in a screening and surveillance program is recommended for Crohn’s colitis patients who have major involvement of the colon. This has been defined somewhat arbitrarily as more than one-third of the colon involved with disease as determined endoscopically (not on biopsymaterial).32
Diagnosed with CD in 1994;
In 1994 I was treated with Pentasa of no avail. Have being treated with Chinese herbal medicines for over 10 years.
