And the biopsies came back saying "None of the biopsies show evidence of inflammatory bowel disease" I am beyond thankful :-) , but...how can that be as in May of 2007 it showed mild, moderate and moderate to severe and now not a trace?
 
I have a call into my GI doc as well.
 
Thanks

Means you are in a solid remission and the inflammation is gone. Keep up with your regimen to help keep it away! My last scope had the same results, after five years of nonstop flare.

Congratulations!

Wonderful news!  It means you are very lucky for one thing.  Mine tomorrow will not be that good but maybe next time.

did it mention anything about the structural changes in the cells to show you did have inflammation?

Everything is fine regarding any precancer..etc?

Congratulations on the awesome scope results!!

Be well,

Hi guys thanks for all the kind words : )

The message I got back from my doc's office said there was no inflamamtion at all and if I stop taking my meds it will return...not quite the detailed explanation I was hoping for but they did fax me the pathology which said they took multiple biopsies in 5 places @ a) the terminal ileum b) the ascending colon c) transverse colon d) descending colon e) sigmoid f) rectum...the comment section said "none of the biopsies show evidence of inflammatory bowel disease"(wow what a blessing) Thankfully I never had any polyps etc.

I just hope this wonderful thing called "remission" lasts a long while the good Lord willing... : )

BTW, if I eat too late at night etc I can still get a bit of very mild to moderate cramping etc the next morning after a BM...no doubt I also have IBS...lucky me, but I guess its good to know its not an IBD (as I used to think) flare but IBS, at least for now.
