Hi, have you had these symptoms?

Hello, I have suffered from inflammatory bowel disease for over thirty years, bled in my twenties and then remission?..now I'm concerned about colorectal cancer. My symptoms are left sided pain and inflammation moving down into the rectal area like a terrible pressure. Might have a slight fever also. There is no bleeding. In fact I haven't bled for years. If it is colorectal cancer I wish I would have bled so I could have gotten a colonoscopy sooner. My colonoscopy is on Wed. May 31st... I had a colonoscopy two years ago with some small polyps. My question to you crohnies is can you have crohn's manifesting like I mentioned above? Terrible pressure pushing on the rectum, almost feels like puckering. It's uncomfortable and painful. Narrow stools also. Thanks, Kelly

I would say yes,definately they sound like crohns symptoms.It sounds very much like proctitis.Crohns can lie dormant for years,giving us the idea that we're rid of it.Then it will sneak up on us with different symptoms and we have to start all over again.Good luck with your test.Please let us know how things go.Best to you.

Thanks, I'll let you know what he finds out on Wednesday. I'm hoping it's not a tumor. Either way, I need to change my diet. I realize that the IBD never went away because my diet was terrible. Even if you don't have many symptoms you can still have inflammation.

Please think positive.It's easy to imagine the worst scenario when we're sick,but stress worsens symptoms and that's not good for you.

Thanks! I had an endoscopy and colonoscopy. They removed a polyp and said I have diverticulosis. But he didn't see all the inflammation I'm feeling in the colon. All the inflammation he did see was in the stomach and esophagus. Biopsies were taken to see if the Barrett's esophagus has worsened. So, in regard to the colon symptoms I am extremely confused. I think I shall join the undiagnosed group...
