Re: Benefits to Diagnosis?
It only makes sense to have a scope if it's suspected you have CD and to be on meds if you need to.
Crohn's can affect the entire wall of the digestive tract (wherever its location). Sometimes strictures can happen from continued inflammation.
I know it costs to have it done, but you should make sure. One possibility is that your small intestine may have an area, and you may need another scope for that. The doc might be able to get into the last part of the ileum to see if there's suggestion of inflammation.
Let us know how it goes.
It's all a matter of perspective!
