I did a bit of research and found out what "featureless colon" means.I got this from another site, thought others might want to know what it is too.
Chronic inflammation in long-standing ulcerative colitis can lead to a "featureless colon," characterized by mucosal atrophy, muscular hypertrophy, and the loss of normal haustral folds, resulting in shortening of the colon and a decreased luminal diameter.
It has got me a little worried. maybe my colon is getting a little worn out and maybe not able to handle many more flares of this disease.
I know this may sound a bit far fetched, but I listen to healing self-hypnosis DVDs (MP3s) when I go to sleep to help my body heal faster. The body heals when it sleeps. Anyway, it could help. The less permanent the damage, the easier it is for the body to heal.
Make sure the DVDs (MP3s) have words. Some DVDs say they are for healing, but they are just music.
