A clean scope means nothing, I've had many since having surgeries. I still ahve Crohns disease, its not going anywhere.
And if your Gastroenterologist is ruling out Crohn's just because of a clean scope, it's time to find a new doc.
My scope came out pretty clean (very minor patches of "irregularities"). But the Prometheus Sereology 7 came back positive for Crohn's, and the sed rate and C-reactive protein results showed active inflammation. IMO, it just doesn't take much in the way of inflammation in the GI tract to make a person *really* miserable.
Just trying to be a "Regular Member".
Entocort 9 mg/day, Prednisone 20 mg/day, started Humira 1/22/08, started 100 mg of Azasan (Imuran) 2/20/08. Increased Azasan to 150 mg 10/15/08. Discontinued Humira 11/03/08 after extreme fatigue and moderate muscle aches. Started Cimzia 12/4/08.
I'm convinced that Prednisone is the root of all evil, and primarily responsible for global warming.
