I was having pain near the takedown site. Got a CT scan. Did not show much there, but did come up with something else that seems unrelated to any pain I'm having. This is what the radiologist's report said:
"Approximately 25 cm from the anal verge, the distal small bowel has enteric wall and mucosal thickening with an intraluminal masslike lesion measuring approximately 6.4 cm long. Inflammatory changes, intussusception, or a mass/lesion cannot be excluded. If these changes are inflammatory, then additional Crohn's disease cannot be excluded. Recommend GI consultation for direct visualization."
My GI doc is doing a pouchoscopy this week to see what it is. He said it could be nothing, could be a polyp, or any number of things. I'm hoping it is just something normal in the pouch, as I don't have any symptoms of anything right now except maybe some adhesions. I'm a 20 year poucher. Mainly I'm hoping this is not something that will require surgery or create issues for the pouch. As far as I know cancers of the pouch and small intestine are rare.
I realize no one can really diagnose on here. It just seems like I remember having pouchosopies before and the term lesion being used when it was really just pouchitis and that went away with antibiotics. Thanks.
