Small intestines: Lesions in the small intestine are difficult to diagnose and often the patient has to swallow a camera like capsule to demonstrate it.

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

Ulcer: If this ulcer was the cause of your pain it usually would be improving by now on pantoprazole. If you have been taking the medicine regularly and are not improving, you should return to your doctor for further advice. Good luck. ...Read more

A double pylorus: I suspect you have a "double pylorus". The pylorus is the part of the stomach leading to the first part of the small intestine (duodenal bulb).

Less commonly a double pylorus is congenital meaning you were born with it. ...Read more

Colonoscopy found tiny ulcers in my small intestine doc questioning if Crohn's can this be if after iron infusion i now have normal CBC and iron level?

Small or large?: Doesn't really make a lot of difference, but i suspect colonoscopy found ulcers in large intestine and your doc felt they might look like crohn's.

NSAID, etc.: The most common reason for ulcers in the intestines is from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (nsaids, ibuprofen, naproxen, et.). Other possibilities include crohn's disease, or many other possibilities, including infections. If this is NSAID induced, the treatment is avoidance of nsaids. If this is infection, it will resolve.
