I’ve suffered with IBS/IBS symptoms for many years and got through flare ups by myself without thinking it could be any other than a bad stomach, however the past few months have been awful and decided to speak to a doctor.
I’ve just had the results of calprotectin and my levels were <1700, <30 and <1800 and have now arranged a follow up call with the Dr.
I’m not sure what the next steps will be, I’m assuming a colonoscopy.
It has taken months to get this far and could take another few to find anything else out. My symptoms are currently easing so I’m just wondering if I go into ‘remission’ would an IBD still be detected? Could the intestines be inflamed even if I’m not having a flare up?
