Re: Is this possible?
Regarding the nonconstant diarrhea...it all depends on where the inflammation is and the severity of the inflammation. It's possible you have Crohn's and not UC considering where you have the inflammation...but there is a form of UC that the cecum/rectum and not inbetween.
Now....bacteria/viruses can be tested in stool samples and in the colon during biopsies. I'm puzzled that you didn't have biopsies throughout your entire colon during the other c-scope.
I guess I would be curious regarding more testing if it were me....and endure another c-scope with LOTS of biopsies to ensure nothing else was going on, etc. But, I'm talking from my own experience of always having lots of biopsies, stool testing, etc to ensure nothing else was going on.
I, personally, think you need to have confirmation. Remember that UC and CD are diseases that are confirmed more by exclusion of other things going on. It also doesn't mean you don't have one or the other with something else going on as well.
colitis is inflammation of the colon...you obviously have that.. He's thinking you don't have Ulcerative colitis....that's a specific diagnosis.
When are you slated for the c-scope?
It's all a matter of perspective!
