Hello everyone. I haven't posted in ages because I have been somewhat well. I have been battling iritis this summer and decided to seek out a new GI. Well, I had a new colonoscopy today (last one was last summer) as the new GI was concerned that I might be battling Crohn's and not UC. Well, I am inflamed from the rectum up 25 cms. I have a narrowing at 12-15 cms that had her concerned. She took many biopsies. I have a skin tag and then the eye condition that seems more common in Crohn's than UC.
Has anyone else experienced a narrowing in your colon (I think they also call it a stricture)? If so, what was done? etc....
Thanks in advance for any of your valued advice/experience. Right now she suggested to restart the enemas and then we will meet this Thursday to discuss the results and also possible Imuran!
