After my latest bleeding episode I have been told I have an Ulcer and Small Piles - by leading Gastro in the UK - Prof Jay Arnold. He works with my Tatler Top 5 Gastro Mr Chopada. They both agreed that I have a rapid transit (IBS) so the blood colour is difficult to use as an indicator of where it is coming from.
In the last week I have had black stools and taken Flagyl and Anti Acids which have cleared it up. He also did a OGD, Flexi Sig, Barium MRI Scan with dye to check for Chrohns, Colitis, Cancer etc, he did blood work and stools tests every day (5 days in private hospital).
So what do I do? I am scared to come off the Asocol as suggested having seen what it has done to others?
Also he has taken a biopsy of the Ulcer and I am worried it might be something else, although he says it is 100% Ulcer.
