This was all very interesting and educating ! But I have a twist ... I had my "colonoscopy" and it showed active crohns colitis w/two fistuals ; the path report says : Ascending biosy; Colitis w/miniml cryptitis
Proximal transverse colon bx : Colitis w/cryptitis, crypt abscess formation w/focal
Transverse & decending bx : miimal increased lymphocytes,plasma cells, eosinohpils in
Sigmoid to rectum bx: Fibroplasia of lamina ropria w/increased lymphocytes, plasma
cells, eosinophils & few neutrophils.
I won't see my GI for f/u until next wed , with the exception of a scare for a few days after the colonoscopy ( which has subsided: -) I feel fine .. I didn't feel bad before the test and I don't feel bad now..Yes, I have some times when I am reminded that I still have the disease ...but for the most part I would never know my insides looked like they do ...
So , unlike you guys , where you have the symptoms but tests didn't show it all, I have the opposite ! I am so not wanting to go back on remicade when I don't feel bad, considering I remember how bad it made me feel...my joints hurt more !
Any explanations for my scenerio?
