Colonoscopy worries
I had dihoria whenever i eat and had abdominal pain right of my naval for 5 years now, My first consultant found nothing on colonoscopy and was really nasty so decided to move hospitals just had a colonoscopy and they said under diagnosis ileitis and i had 7 biopsies take in two different places, seven seems qutie alot, do you think it could be cancer the inflammation they found, would they tell me if they was thinking or testing that, she said it didnt look like typical crohns but it might be a type she never seen before, but said cause it doesnt look typical crohns its a good thing cause crohns is a horrible disease but cancer is worse so surely if they thought that she wouldnt make that comment and also called me a medical mystery, I just cant sleep keep crying wondering, ive also had abodominal pain since colonoscopy and where they found inflammation is where all my pain is. she also said my colon looked happy would it if it was cancer? Im only 24 and my local gp hasnt been helpfull feeling very alone :(

Thankyou in advance

Have they done a endoscopic? Where they stick the camera down you throat? You won't remember a thing. I didn't. There are always second opinion. Hang in there. BTW, I'm young too. 27, diagnosed at 25. Hugs.

Re: Colonoscopy worries
It's all about faith. And faith in your doctors. They thought mine was the same thing. Finally was sent to a liver specialist. He is amazing. He does my treatments even. Stay possitive sweetie. I have sooo much faith. At least I now know what it wrong with me. Soon, you will too. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers....if you don't mind.
