New to the website, but not to Ulcerative Colitis. I am looking for some general advice. I was diagnosed in 2010 and understand the necessity of lower scopes. I have had 4 scopes along with a flex sig in 8 years. To me, that sounds extreme. I am going through a minor flare right now and again the recommendation is a scope, even though I had a colonoscopy within a year of right now that was perfectly clean. My concern is medical churning. I don’t like thinking that way, but if I am exhibiting all the symptoms of a flare, why not prescribe to get this back into remission.
