no symptoms but bad colonoscopy?

What does it mean if I have no symptoms but my colonoscopy shows inflammation/ulcers? Are inflammation/ulcers inherently bad (besides increased risk of colon cancer) if I don't have symptoms?
(If it's relevant at all, my CRP level is always low, even when I have a bad flare with symptoms).

  1. Hi .

    I'm sorry your colonoscopy has shown these things. Are you on medication for IBD? Perhaps the medication is keeping symptoms at bay? And in general, I think just across the board inflammation and ulcers are never a good thing. If you aren't having symptoms that's great but I would try and heal the ulcers and inflammation regardless. Ask your doctor about diets that can promote healing and supplements perhaps?
