After I got sick in December from having severe bloody diarrhea and a calproctecin of greater than 6000. Then having a colonoscopy in February which revealed inflammation but they couldn't get to the small bowel so I had a Small bowel MRI done and just seen my consultant for the results. At first the consultant asked me how I was feeling and if I've had any symptoms. I had another calproctecin done which the consultant wasn't aware of which was less than 15. (Within normal range) it stated on the report "result could indicate remission if previously diagnosed with crohns" I gave this report to the consultant who said it was very reassuring and told me my MRI was fine and he thinks i had a severe infection and its not crohns. He also said there's a small percentage that I have crohns as nothing Is 100%. My question is if I'm in remission and have no inflammation as my calproctecin stated wouldn't my MRI be normal? How do people get a diagnosis if someone is in remission? And if in remission can crohns be defected in an MRI?
