Recently I had a colonoscopy as I have been have symptoms of upper right side abdomen pain, chronic diarrhoea, blood and mucus in stools, fatigue and weight loss.
The colonoscopy showed I had some inflammation in my left colon and rectum, and I had some biopsy’s taken.
I have had a colonoscopy before around 2 years ago including a biopsy which came back normal. However as my symptoms have only been getting worse I asked to be referred to gastro, who suggested repeating the test.
I have a follow up appointment in December. But I was wondering what could cause inflammation in the colon this time round that was different to before? I have read online that IBD can causes inflammation in the colon, but would this not have been picked up from the biopsy when I first had the colonoscopy done?
I really want to get to the bottom of my symptoms but at the moment I feel like I’m going round in circles with the doctors and am not getting any closer to answer.
