Colitis went away NEW
by: Annette Young

Hello there,

Thank you for your question. I really wanted to respond to you on this because the good news is that Colitis or Crohn’s can seemingly just disappear. It happened to my mother who had experienced an extraordinary amount of pain and discomfort and then suddenly it simply eased off without indication. Unfortunately, her returned and she was diagnosed with Crohn's so sadly, it does not mean that you won't ever have the symptoms again or that there are no other Crohn’s/Colitis symptoms brewing.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news because it is a wonderful feeling to feel that your body is in recovery and that you don't have to go through anymore pain or discomfort but the truth of the matter is that these inflammatory bowel diseases often go into remission and can return at a later date.

In all honesty, many people are misdiagnosed in the early stages or, indicators of Crohn's disease are overlooked and it can take some time, in fact some years, before a full diagnosis can be made.

The important thing from your perspective is to essentially enjoy any freedom of pain or discomfort for as long as it lasts and fingers crossed it will continue to stay away. However you need to be on top of these conditions by intuitively checking for any changes.

Colonoscopies can show that all is clear but this does not mean that there is not some disease or information somewhere. So just have this in your mindset for the worst-case scenario.

Many people do go on to lead normal productive life and have very few symptoms and limited flareup bouts and this is fantastic news. Some people go years in between bouts of discomfort but no one is really sure why this happens. The best thing that you can do is to be prepared, live as healthy as lifestyle as you can, treating your digestive tract with kid gloves and ensuring that you don't do anything that might act as a trigger.

I hope this helps. Good luck
Annette

i went for a colonoscopy just three hours ago and they found no inflammation whatsoever in large or small bowel, but havent been able to go to the toilet naturally now for quite some time, need to take senna and an enema. so it seems that yes it can just go away and just lies dormant until it decides to rear its ugly head. but like the previous comment you no your own body if it doesnt feel right dont be fobbed off

peace

IBD can go into remission and it appears that your Crohn's colitis is now in remission.

However, it does not mean that you have no smouldering Crohn's somewhere else in the gut. If the disease smoulders, this can be very difficult to see because it does not generally cause strictures or anything that can be detected on medical imaging.

You are the best judge of that as only you know how you feel at any given moment. If you feel well, then you can celebrate. If you feel Crohn's'd then it is very likely that your colitis has gone into remission but your disease is active elsewhere.

A word of warning, Crohn's disease starts in the submucosa and can spread in any direction. Ulcerative colitis stays in the upper part of the mucosa and is generally diagnosed faster and treated more successfully that Crohn's. A patient at another forum reported that her colonoscopy was clear. At the same time she was experiencing some gynaecological issues and had to have exploratory laproscopy. The surgeon reported that he had found Crohn's on the outside of the colon. This is something that most doctors do not consider or are unaware of when treating Crohn's patients.

If you are feeling good, then congratulations. If not, keep on working with your doctors. A consultation with a nutritionist would help you if you have not got a handle on your diet. Good nutrition is critical to maintaining remission.

- vitamin B complex (8 B vitamins),
- vitamin C,
- fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K),
- calcium
- zinc,
- magnesium,
- copper,
- selenium,
- iodine,
- molybdenum,
- manganese,
- chromium.

I suggest that you read up on nutrition and check that you are eating all the food groups necessary. Look up the micronutrients needed here: http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/list-VitaminsMinerals/

Some tips and caveats for you:
- Calcium and vitamin D*,
- Magnesium (essential for bones)**,
- Iron and vitamin C (blood),
- Fish oil capsules (fat-soluble vitamins)***,
- LoSalt****,

*Do not overdose on calcium as this can lead to calcium deposits in the arteries. If you eat dairy and do not have much diarrhoea, the calcium supplement will not be necessary - or take only have a fizzy tablet.
**Can exacerbate diarrhoea.
***Caveat: the FDA says no more than 3 g per day. However, consumer tests have shown that few of the fish oil capsules contain mercury.

Colitis, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns Disease, Ileitis ...... they are all just names for inflammation that is happening in the gastrointestinal tract.
Do not buy in to the whole 'doctor' story that you have a disease.
You have DIS-EASE.
If you need medication - take it
If you need a procedure - do it
This will sort out the symptoms ... BUT NOT THE CAUSE.
The medical industry will keep you believing that you have a disease, to keep you a customer of their solutions. Medications.
Find out your cause, what's going on in your mind and prevent the symptoms from there :)
Go to youtube and search Kit Campbell or Welcome to IBS
You can make a difference for yourself :)
