I’m 21 years old, and I have been sick with severe stomach pain, bloody, and mucusy stools for the past 1.5 months. They’re testing me for Crohns and Colitis. I haven’t had any blood in my stool in about a week, and I have a scheduled colonoscopy. I’m worried that since I’ve been feeling a bit better when they do the 2 tests they’re not going to find anything wrong. If I do indeed have Crohns will it show in these tests even if my supposed flare up is done? Also, what do I expect for a colonoscopy and a gastroscopy? I’ve never had either done and I’m extremely scared. After these tests are done, they want to do a biopsy. Where does the needle go when looking for these types of diseases??
