Possible Crohns Disease
For the past month and a half I have had blood and mucus in my stools. The last 2 weeks the stools have been really loose. I had my colonoscopy yesterday. The DR found I had segmental colitis and wrote crohns disease with question mark. He did a biopsy, but he thinks that may be the problem. I am also anemic. I do not seem to have any other symptoms though. I am scared.Everything I read about Crohns scares me.  I am 31 years old and never have had health problems. I have an 8 year old son whose life I am very active in. I am a den leader in scouts and he also plays baseball and I play roller derby. I am scared this will change everything.  The disease they say I may have has no cure. Could it be anything else? What can I expect if it comes back as chrons?

Hi, thanks for your query. Your description and the report of colonoscopy does point towards Crohn’s. A more convincing diagnosis can be established following the biopsy reports.   Crohn’s  is a well studied disease and lots of treatment options are available. People with crohn’s diease can lead a happy life if the disease is under check by medications. So do not worry.
Wish you good health.
