Thank you for your responses.
What tests should I ask for?
I have had a colonoscopy, upper GI, ultrasound and blood tests. This was all done in the end of May. Everything looked good except for my colonoscopy. I know I had atleast 1 biopsy b/c that is how they knew I had inflammation and an ulcer.
Should they have done biopsies during the upper GI even though it looked good?
My understanding is that the only way to dx UC is the colonoscopy - is that right?
Is CD dx with the upper GI?
I was put on some rectal meds for a couple of days. Then I had my colonoscopy and they told me I could stop. I have never actually sat down and talked with the Dr. He just did the procedures, gave me the results and put me on Colazal -without any discussion about my symptoms. I met with my PCP who was really helpful - he has IBD of some sort. I have an appt with a new Dr. in a couple of weeks. I have read so much that at times it gets more confusing. I don't understand why it seems like there are a lot of people who take so long to dx. I would be very happy if it turned out to be something temporary, but after 2 months of meds the symptoms are getting worse again.
If there is anything you can tell me to ask for or make sure I have answered at my next appt, that would be wonderful.
Thank you! Pam
