I have Crohns most likely but the Pathologists results say it could be either UC or CD.

I was told from biopsies 3 years ago it was Crohns, but since Im in remission, and the inflamation is all but gone, the latest biopsies didnt show any CD.. so not sure.. still on all the same meds, and they have finally worked, so I will just stick with that for now.
(my Dr said pathology would only be important for me, if and when surgery comes into play)

I was told they (pathologists) couldn't tell whether it was Crohn's or Ulcerative. I'd been told by someone that if I was lucky, it would turn out to be UC, because according to that source, UC is curable/Crohns is not. Thought that was the story, but my research since says that, altho different... neither is [quote]"curable"[un-quote]. Distinctive characteristic is the level of the scarring.. apparently scars run deeper in crohns... Mine apparently too imature to tell. (hmm, wonder if that's because I still don't act my age??) UC, CD, IBD, it's all the shits as far as I'm concerned... (but doc thinks it's CD)... So, what do I win? Tell me

Age old question... And there are so many variations.. and then there are some of us who no one knows for sure which version or combo of IBD they got. I wish I (or my GI's, or the lab work, scopes, CT's, X-rays, biopsies, welll, you get the idea)
could say for sure which 'version' I got... It certainly would be nice to know before I someday face the ostomy issue.. In the meantime, does it really matter all that much? Like, regardless of whether you or I have UC, CC, CD, or whatever... think we have much more in common than the little pigeonholes a doctor may use to distinguish between us. Anyone else feel the same way I do?

Hi w4sted. welcome to the forum. Having this happen to one's children can be a very hard issue for parents to deal with. You'll find other parents on here, even some folks who contracted/diagnosed at similar ages.. we even have a regular on here who is only 14 (but an amazing 14 year old). The 'good' news (if I can use that phrase) is that this is typically a 'life' altering disease, not a life ending one. I hope you can draw some comfort from that, and hope N stength from the other members on here, their stories. Be sure to let us know how you make out.. There's an introductory segment on here called My Story.. Drop in there and tell us a little more about yourself.. your child.. Once again, welcome!

and, to reiterate my earlier point about... well, my issue with pigeonholing our colective 'disease'... anyone who hasn't should take a look at our newest IBD member. Originally pigeonholed with Colitis, dr's later discovered (big shock) it was wrong dx.. It was crohns.. and the J-pouch surgery wasn't the big 'cure'.

I personally think 'WE' have to watch out for pigeonholing.. so we don't fall into the 'trap' of telling someone who has been mis-labeled (mis-diagnosed) as it being CC, UC or whatever.. that they can be 'cured' if they just do this/that.

I HAD that happen when I was originally mis-diagnosed with Diverticular Assoc. colitis. told that my resection would be the end of this nitemare. It wasn't. And I wouldn't want anyone else, even my worst enemy, to suffer the incredible dissappointment that I went thru when my disease CAME back, worse N ever!!

end of sermon.. (I promise)
