  • So sorry for your pain and bowel problems!

    How high was your calprotectine (and what range)?

    A capsule can show inflammation (it doesn't notice light inflammation) but only a biopsy can show if it is Crohn's. Did they take biopts at the colonoscopy?

  • Hiya,i dont know what level it was recently but when i was in hospital for 6days they said my level was through the roof and at that point i was told i had crohns but my new consultant is not convinced thats why i have to have the capsule x
