I am afraid of an IBD diagnosis. So far, I'm being tested for a metabolic disorder, a connective tissue disease, and various cancer markers by a geneticist at Childrens Hospital. I'm waiting for all those tests to come back too. I had a DEXA (bone density) scan today and if that comes back abnormal it means that steroids would be very very bad for me. I am sort of at my limit of things I can sanely handle.
I had mucus and bloody stool/diarrhea. The blood is often mixed in with the stool/diarrhea and not just streaks n the tp. Right now though I'm in a constipation stage. I've also lost about
10lbs in a month which is a lot for me, about
10% of my body weight. I've had a couple of doctors hint at an IBD diagnosis before. I guess I just wanted to know if the negative biopsies rule out any IBD diagnosis.
Thank you for your reply
