Yes, they told me I have a healthy colon!!! I did find the diagnostic painful as my intestines feel inflamed. After it is a bit worse as they must blow air to be able to travel through intestines. Then they did endoscopy and just found hiatus hernia and some erosion. No candida. They did biopsy small intestine as they are thinking I have celiac (even though removing gluten etc did not fix my issue all the way). I am waiting for results (apparently it takes about month or two for those to come back, yay free healthcare!!!)
