Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Ulcers in the terminal ileum are usually associated with inflammatory diseases in the intestines such as terminal ileitis or  Chron's which is usually managed with dietary changes and with some medications.  It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper management. Your complete medical history, diagnostic test results and physical examination are important to determine the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.

I have had chronic diarrhea, severe abdominal pain and explosive movements since 2005.  I have had multiple colonoscopies since 05 and in fact just got home from one this morning.  I was told they found multiple ulcers in my terminal ileum and have to wait for the biopsy results.  I am also waiting for results from a carcinoid urine test.  My questions are: what causes these long lasting symptoms and how do they treat these ulcers?  By the way, I had a duodenal ulcer at age 18, could this be related?
