crohns disease question
A few months ago while on a regular colonoscopy, the doctor saw inflammation on my colon. Recently I finished all the tests and indeed I have CD. However, I have never had any symptoms.
Here is my story: the doctor that conducted the coloscopy, a gastrointestinal doctor, but not an expert in CD, has suggested to me that as long as I have no sysmptoms, I should not start any medication. A few days ago, I saw an expert in CD to get a second opinion and she told me that based on the tests, the ilness seems progressive, it is not going to go away and that she would be inclined to start medication and give me 6-mercaptopurine. I am now confronted with two opinions and shortly I will want to make a decision. Is for this reason that I write to you to get other opinions. By the way I am 62.
I would appreciate your comments.
