Penncort - I was diagnosed with Ulcerlative Colitis in 2001 - after a colonoscopy. I am having gastric bypass surgery so they needed to check my intestines to make sure I was even a canidate for the surgery. After the colonoscopy this time the doctor told my husband and me that he didn't see any signs of UC - but that he had taken samples for biopsy just to be sure - and they came back negative. I too was then diagnosed with sever IBS-D.
It was a big score for following through on the surgery - but left me boggled as to how I could have been wrongly diagnosed - or it just disappeared as I'm going as often as ever now.
