Dr thought it could be IBD, calprotectin was 400, no infection, lots of gastro symptoms, low iron. Colonoscopy was normal, they took biopsies and removed small polyps. Has this happened to anyone else? What was the outcome?

How did you get on?
Iv had bowel symptoms but normal fit test and normal bloods but calprotectin was elevated at 275 and just sent off a second sample (1 month later) to see if it’s still elevated.
I get bloated and gassy (possibly bread ) was getting constipation which led to piles but since not eating white bread Iv been fine.
diarhea but only when Iv ate spicy food otherwise bowels are ok.
slight discomfort on abdomen on the left side but almost like a dull ache
I’m so confused I don’t feel like it’s chromes or UC as not typical with that!
also had 3 kids in less then 5 years
