I wasn't sure where to post this. I have been off gluten for about 2 years. I still have GI issues. I was hospitalized in 1/12 and 6/12 for GI issues. Here are some recent tests.
My CT scan: "thickening of the distal tranverse colon...descending colon and rectum... consistent with colitis." It also shows a lot of stool burden. There was also thickening seen on a 2007 CT scan.
My colonoscopy: the descending colon mucosa is "erythematous, hemorrhagic, ulcerated, and to show loss of vascular markings suggestive of stercoral ulcers due to constipation." Four biopsies were taken. There also was inflammation seen on a 2007 colonoscopy.
My path report.
Descending colon, biopsy:
- Colonic mucosa with edema and hemorrhage
- No evidence of ischemic injury, inflammatory bowel disease or active inflammation.
I also have elevated SED Rate and Lactoferrin.
I don't think any of this is related to Celiac. But, what would these results indicate? The inpatient doctors said I had "end stage constipation." Has anyone heard of this? They said to take Miralax as a bowel regimen. Something must be causing my constipation/GI issues.
