Thanks nice cup of tea. They didnt see any ulcerations via colonoscopy nor MRE, which my GI said is prefered scan for IBD. And more accurate than a pill cam, althoufh he gave me the option of either or. He wants to play the waiting game now, but i dont really want to lol. He said he would recomend waiting a month to see if i improve, as he suspects post infectious ibs once again. Then we could pull out the "big gun meds" as he called it. He also said i could try a round of rifaximin antibiotic. Please gove me your thoughts on this. Eleanor, i had no ulcers , infact he went as far as saying 99% was normal besides a couple red specs. Wierd how the first calprotectin level was so high, the clear tests lead him to beleive it was a bad infection that passed, leaving some residual inflammation.
