Hello all, I need some help on interpreting my recent colonoscopy results. I had a scope done two weeks ago. Right after the procedure the doctor told me that I have no visible signs of active inflammation, and I can just stick to my treatment plan. I was extremely relived after hearing that, since I thought the scope would show mild inflammation on the left side of the colon. Today I received my biopsy results, and this is where things start getting interesting. Biopsies were taken from the left and right side of the colon. Here is what the report said "Fragments of colonic mucosa showing moderate chronic colitis, negative for granulomas, dysplasia or malignancy." Does this mean that I do have active disease, which is moderate, and I am not in remission? M bloodwork and stool calprotectin tests always came back normal in the past two years... The report doesn't say "ulcerative colitis" so could the inflation be of a different nature? I have an appointment with my GI next week, so I will ask him to explain everything in detail. I don't know if I can wait for so long though to know what is going on.
