Hello, been diagnosed with UC since 2011. It's been some-what rough but Imuran and Mesalamines have let me keep my colon. I did need to start Entyvio which I've been on for 5 months. It really kicked me into an awesome remission a little over 3 months in but recently I've noticed symptoms returning. Some mucous in the mornings with some blood. Stools can be formed (a bit of blood coating sections of the stool) some days while a little loose others but there is almost always a detectable amount of blood. It doesn't fill and turn the toilet bowl red but I fear I'm returning to that stage.
The thing is I contacted my doctor about
it and got blood and stool tests done. All my blood work came back with normal ranges WBC's RBC's. Did a CRP test and it was 0, did a Calprotectin test and its was 35 ug/g. Stool samples were all negative for parasites and C-DIFF.
So what the heck is going on? Is this signs of cancer? I had a colonoscopy a little over a year ago.... can cancer get so bad to cause bleeding in such a short time?
Anyone else get symptoms likes this but get back such amazing test results?
