Just got back. This is my second colonoscopy. Last one 8 years ago showed idiopathic proctitis. After a promethease genetic bloodtest it was determined it was likely a variant of ulcerative colitis.
Today’s colonoscopy was with a different practice and doctor. There were no polyps, no inflammation, no proctitis. It was noted that there were “segmental abnormal vascularity in the cecum, ascending colon and proximal transverse colon. Localized abnormal vascularity was noted in mid rectum and distal rectum.
Doctor said he didn’t see evidence of IBD but of course final determination is through the biopsies. about
the abnormal vascularity: he said he wouldn’t have even taken biopsies except I’ve had recent symptoms a month or so ago.
I realize nobody here is a doctor but you all are very experienced patients and I’d like to know your thoughts please.
His recommendation is another colonoscopy in 5 years but if the biopsies come back ok than 10 years.
