I found this very interesting as I learn more about Collagenous Colitis.

My Support Groups:
Was I reading this right, did they say that colonoscopies can set the stage for developing crohn's disease?? That is scary. I would not doubt it, these procedures are horrible invasive and very unnatural. I am having to go through one soon as I am having issues and have to see what is going on. I gotta say, I am a bit worried about the after effects.....

Hi, I didn't read it say anything about colonoscopies turning into Crohn's. Hmmm, sorry if the article scared you. I had a colonoscopy a month ago and the procedure went well and I slept the entire time. The prep is the worst....
