Quincy i'm very confused by what they said.
14 months ago whilst in remission my colonoscopy showed no active inflammation and they said that i had a featureless colon from years of UC.
4 Weeks ago my G.I. said he believed that most of my current problems were due to a prolapse, possibly rectum and he ordered a sigmoidoscopy.
My sig was not carried out by my G.I. The people that carried out the sig said that they were unable to do a u-turn in my lower colon due to inflammation and narrowing of the colon. When they tried to do a u turn i was actually squealing with pain, not very man-like but it was unbearable. They decided against trying to do u-turn.
When they entered they found a lot of inflammation and they remarked on seeing mucous and inflamed lining. As they went upwards i could see patches of red and this seemed to get less the further they went. When they got up into the transverse colon they said that they had seem enough. They took a lot of biopsies.They told me that it would take a week for biopsies of non specific inflammation to be proccessed
I'm sure that inflammation will come back as UC, but i am a little concerned.
I had a lot of bleeding until yesterday. I have found that the slippery elm is really beneficial at easing inflammation.
My G.I. took me off Prednisolone 4 weeks ago and said until they get results from sig they will not start any treatments.
Thanks for your reply Quincy
