I have recently had a CT Scan and colonoscopy where Dr. said he removed 1 polyp and took several biopsies of different areas in my colon. The results came back as mild inflammation - no cancer. He had me do more lab work yesterday that has to be sent off and I should know in a couple days. He said he is looking for antibodies. He wants to rule out Crohn's.
I originally went to the doctor for most of the key symptoms of Crohn's. Well, I'm not having any of the weight loss - the one thing I wouldn't mind!! haha. Anyway, I have been mildly anemic on all of my lab reports for the last 3 years.
I'm know I'm being impatient, but what are the chances that this may be something much more simple than Crohn's?
Also, if it turns up that I do have Crohn's and it is causing the anemia, I wonder how I would manage it if I have to take anticoagulants every day for a blood clotting disorder.
