I have heard of the colon dying in places, parts of it just sorta going to sleep, with Endometriosis, not so much with CD though.

Maybe it just disappeared.
27m - Dx January 2005: UC/Crohn's
Humira, Entocort 9 mg, Asacol 4 x 3, Flagyl 250 mg x 3
Imuran failed

CD/UC story: I took Cipro. Then, I had diarrhea. It felt like my whole colon was burned. It eventually got extremely painful to even have a bowel movement when only one drop of blood was passed. I was diagnosed with c diff. Took Vancomycin and the blood stopped. Diarrhea persisted. Colonoscopy was done and CD/UC was found. Cipro, I hate you and the doctor who put me on it for an "ear infection."
