Well, I did the osmo prep (which I highly recommend) and went in thursday morning for my colonoscopy. I had the propofol sedation and it was wonderful!  The nurse gave it to me and said, "dream about going on vacation" and the next thing I remember was waking up in recovery.  The doc said my illiocecal valve was severely stenosed and she wasn't able to get the scope through it.  My rectum had apothous ulcers but was deemed mild.  She also said that I do have an anal skin tag.  (i didn't know if it was that or a hemmie)  So basically, I didn't have much change from my last scope three years ago.   So I guess that's all good news.  I'm no better and no worse off than previous.

I have chronic loose stool with occasional true diarrhea.  Sometimes I have pain in my right side around my belly button.  To be honest the rectal issues are worse for me than anything.  Whenever i go to the bathroom, it feels like glass coming out and then my anus and rectum hurt for the rest of the day.  I've been having diarrhea all day today. Don't know if it is just left over from the prep or if the scope stirred things up on the inside.  She did take several biopsies. ???

My ileoceal valve is stenosed as well. I used to have constant D, but I've since developped strictures, so now have mostly C and pencil thin poops. Is there any kind of anesthetic suppository they could give you to control your pain and burning.?
It is good news knowing things haven't progressed too much with your crohns....still "crappy" to have this disease to start off with though.

just an update, I got my official pathology report of my illeocecal  valve biopsies today.  The report said something to the affect of consistent with chronic active inflammatory bowel disease. Something about cryptitis (which what is that?) and severe inflammation.  Not sure what all it means?

Want Relief,
Cryptitis is another fancy word meaning inflammed cell, specifically the cells that produce the lining of your intestines, : Sounds like you may need an anti-inflammatory. Good luck with all this..hope you are feeling better soon.
