Hello!
 
  My 2yr old  had his first colonoscopy on Monday because he has been suffering with large amounts of mucus and blood in his stool for over the past 5mos. The only thing that was found in his colon and small intestines was swollen lymphnodes (lymphoid hyperplasia). The doctor said this could be from an infection or the beginning of chron's or Ulcerative colitis. Has anyone else began with this ? They took 12 biopsies and i just found out they were normal but something in my gut is telling something is not right.
 
thanks ,

That is something new to me so I looked it up and it appears it is a reaction to infection. I suppose it could be related to the onset of Crohns, but I imagine they will take cultures and such to see if there is a bacterial thing going on in there.

thanks for your post and yes the information i have found on it is very limited. i talked to the nurse a little while ago a she said all the biopsies were normal! and she did not find bacterial growth so i'm so baffeled now. dont get me wrong i am happy all looks good so far . Its just really hard because it gets bad sometimes and i get really scared! the doc said if it isnt better in a few weeks they will treat with steroid treatments for inflammation. so i guess time will tell
