Well, nothing is impossible, only highly improbable. I assume that you mean your gastro doesn't want to commit himself until the RESULTS of the biopsies he TOOK during your scope come back. He would have been sorely remiss if he had NOT taken biopsies during this colonoscopy.
Did you find watching the monitor quite fascinating? I LOVE watching the monitor. You have a gastro who's pretty darn good w/that scope if you had only the one episode of pain!!! "They" say that the sigmoid colon is the trickiest area to maneuver w/the scope and the most likely area for discomfort. My gastro is slick as snot on a doorknob w/that colonoscope and she breezes thru the sigmoid w/o a twinge. Its that doggone transverse colon that gives us grief. I swear mine dips down to my pubic bone and beyond! Women have a slightly longer colon than men, usually. I suppose to make for more flexibility during late pregnancy. Whatever, we do have "fun" usually towards the last half of the transverse colon approaching that hepatic flexure. Other than that my scopes are a breeze.
The news doesn't sound good in that it sure sounds like you do have Crohn's and that its spread thru quite a bit of your distal ileum and the colon. Dang it! It would have been nicer if there has just been one teeny tiny Crohn's ulceration or whatever, just enough to give you a Dx, but mild enough that given proper medication you could knock it into remission fast and KEEP it in remission indefinitely.
Ah well, if wishes were horses, right? Good luck and God bless. We are glad that your prep wasn't so bad!! Guess we gotta learn to be grateful for small favors. *sigh*
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
