Just had my third colonoscopy this year (!!!) on Monday. Had a severe flare earlier this year and it's the second check-up to see how well I have improved. Am feeling like I was in remission, but scope still shows moderate inflammation.
Ileocecal valve - moderate chronic inflammation
Ascending colon - moderate chronic inflammation
Descending colon - mild chronic inflammation
I have crohn's colitis, so everything has always stayed in my colon only and not the small bowel, but with the skip lesions that are more crohn's like.
A little disappointed today that I'm not healing faster, but definitely better than February's severe inflammation that had me down for the count for about 2.5 months.
**32 year old female; Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2001; diagnosis changed to Crohn's disease in 2009 (but still only impacts colon)
**Asacol (4800 mg daily), 6-MP (100 mg daily), Prednisone (8 mg daily...for a few more weeks), Flagyl (250 mg every other day), Nexium (40 mg daily)
**Thankfully only two major flare-ups...2001 and 2009. Hoping to have another 8 years in between the next one (sadly, I do know there will be a next one).
**GOAL of one day being immunosuppressant free...still working on my doctor on this one but I am a world traveler who desperately wants to go to Africa one day!
