Colonoscopy today... I'm worried about findings


Hey.... a little worried 🤔 So I had my colonoscopy today 8 years on from my last and the found a 10mm sessile polyp.... they removed it successfully and then took up to 15 biopsy 😳😳

Is this just..., Yes you have definitely got Chron's or is this worse.....

Ask whoever ordered the colonoscopy to explain the results to you. They may not bother to contact you if the results are negative. Best wishes for a good outcome.

It all depends on what they find in the biopsies. I had a colonoscopy done where they immediately upon site found my colon/small bowel was full of inflammation, they took over 30 biopsies from throughout the inflammed area...waited 3 months for the results to be told NO sign of Chron's. Now that being said, I was also told if I wasn't in the middle of a flare up at the time of the biopsies that Chron's may not of been apparent in the biopsies. Chron's is such a sneaky disease, you can go years before getting a proper diagnosis. And there is NO blood work to determine Chron's, only through biopsies and ongoing symptoms can a GI specialist diagnose Chron's.

Thank you, I'm sure when I was under he said no signs of Chron's however my last colonoscopy was 8 years ago....and it was clear, so this 10mm sessile polyp has developed in that time. Obviously due to persistent daily sickness and dioreha. I can not seem to regain my weight or even eat properly at the moment.

Just feeling very frustrated and a little worried 😩

<HUGS> Hang in there.
