I thought you meant you were seeing your gi this morning, not November. With a clean biopsy it points in the direction you do not have crohns. Where was the inflammation located per the biopsy report. Your symptoms & how they occur do not correlate with crohns disease. People with crohns disease do not have a flare that disappears on its own, we take medication & often need extra medication when a flare occurs.
The calprotecin test is not used to diagnose crohns. It is to detect inflammation, also used for folks with IBS, used as marker not for diagnosing. An infection can elevate things too.
You mentioned being diagnosed with SIBO, thats a bacteria overgrowth in the gut, also can cause mal-absorption issues & hence weight loss as a result. Have you been checked for h-pyloria? What kind of treatment did you receive for the SIBO?
You may want to keep a log of when you have issues, what happens & the length of time it takes to feel better. Next, keep a food diary. If you eat something that gives you problems make a note of it. Some people will say there is no blood with IBS, my son's wife had bloody diarrhea & she has IBS really bad. She kept a food diary & it was helpful for the gi to see this. She saw a nutritionist about
diet & that was a great help to her.
I do hope the rtool test you are doing today will be checking for infections & such. Take care.
