Fruitgirl, sorry to hijack...but you had an ulcer in your ileum and do NOT have CHron's?
This has been my question since my last c-scope. Showed one ulcer in the ileum...
Had my first c-scope in 2006 with different doc, who saw i believe 2 small ones. At that point he did a test for Chron's, i think it was some Promethium thing that came back " indeterminate colitis"..either way because only the rectum was involved and my symptoms were pretty mild, he didn't think anything of it.
Suggested Asacol, but said if Cansasa worked, use that only. Which I did and things stayed calm until 2 years later when I was eating Alleve like M& M's while training for marathon, had C- scope then,but nothing in the ileum.
Again, had one in June saw 1 ulcer. Been trying to get my GI to tell me with some certainty if he thinks it;'s Chron's or whatever. But he is just not very sure. ( Have an appt with another GI in Nov)
Anyway...aside from the 1 ulcer in my ileum, everything was clear, excpet mild-mod proctitis about 15-18 cm.
I'm interested in your thoughts on this...I have been researching like a lunatic but nothing is definitive??
