Hi everyone.I'm from the Middle East and This is my first post on this forum.Before everything, I just want to apologize for my bad English and this long post
I have a question that it seems there is no answer for it on the internet.
1-Three month ago, I've been diagnosed with preanal abscess and surgery was used to drain the pus.The wound from surgery hasn't healed yet and pus is coming until today.
2-Two month ago, I had an MRI scan and it showed that I have developed two fistulas.Because of this, I went to see a gastrointestinal specialist and he asked me to take a stool calprotectin test.The result wasn't good(The test value was 800 while the normal value for this test should be <50).So he asked me to undergo colonoscopy which I did and in report descript
ion, I saw this:
Colonoscopy: Normal looking mucosa and vascular marking up to cecum.there was sever ulceration in TI up to 30cm
Total comment: Crohns Ileitis.
So the doctor prescribed Mesalazin tablets and Suppositories and asked me to return two weeks later with my pathology report.
The report came today and in diagnosis section, I saw :
Terminal ileum mucosal biopsy showing:
-inflamed & congested small intestinal mucosa with chronic active erosive inflammation.
-Normal villous pattern.
now I'm confused. According to my doctor, this report shows that I don't have Crohn but still have some sort of IBD, however, I can't find any other disease(other than Crohn and Colit) related to IBD.
So what's exactly wrong with me?Which disease do I have?Are the preanal abscess and fistulas a result of this disease or not?
Any information about
other IBD disease would be appropriated.
Sry again for my bad and annoying English.
Thanks in advance.
