I have recently been investigated for recurring iron deficiency. Calprotectin came back raised so I was sent for colonoscopy. This looked normal but biopsies came back from colon showing mild chronic inflammatory bowel disease suspicious for Crohns colitis but not definitely diagnostic. Terminal ileum and rectal biopsies were normal. Histology also showed focal lymphoid hyperplasia. I have also been suffering lower right abdo pain and fissures. I have been started on Clipper 5mg for a month but at the minute im feeling confused as to whether I should be taking anything without a definite diagnosis. Has anyone been in a similar position? Also awaiting an MRI. Can an MRI show evidence of old/current inflammation? Quite confused over what is happening. I have asked if I have Crohns and all I've been told is mild inflammation.
