Colonoscopy and CT findings?

Hi I have a query in relation to what doctors are looking for when diagnosing IBD. In the last few months I have been experiencing diaorhea, stomach pains and have lost weight. I had a ct scan that showed inflammation of the colon and and had a colonoscopy last week. The nurse informed me that 'erythemas' was found on my colon. I am confused, and slightly concerned. Are these signs of Crohn's or colitis that are found in colonoscopy and CT?

I would strongly advise getting a doctor (a specialist such as a Gastroenterologist, if possible) to look at those test results and interpret them for you.

they mean red patches or sore patches.
they saw no ulcers or bleeding which is a relief.
did they take biopsies?

Yes they took eight biopsies, and the consultant i am under is a colorectal surgeon. Im presuming that depending on results my consultant will then liaise with the GI to see if i would need to see a GI. Are these 'sores' and 'patches' symptomatic of IBD?

well the biopsies will clear it up for sure. they can tell which it is from the cells most of the time. uc and crohns look different under the microscope.
