I had my colonoscopy a few hours ago and the results are different then what I thought. I had my first colonoscopy in oct 07 and was told crohn's. Then I switched drs after not feeling confident in the one I was going to. That doctor that it was more of an ulcerative colitis. After giving me medications for 7 weeks and they were clearing up any symptoms he decided i needed another colonoscopy. So I had one today and the diagnosis is Severe Ulcerative Proctitus. The findings said:
Segmental severe inflammation characterized by congestion (edema), erythema, friability, granularity, and shallow ulcerations.
So my question to you all is ulcerative proctitis the same thing as ulcerative colitis??
When he came to talk to me after the procedure I wasn't very with it at all....so hes supposed to call me tommorrow and talk to me about what he saw and everything. My mom was my driver and she said that he said we needed to get this under control fast because it was such severe inflammation.
did anyone else have this at all??
