20 years with Crohns
avatar
Anon_43652 posted:
I was diagnosed with Crohns in 1993. I have had only that one flare up. My last 3 colonoscopies were totally normal. I have one every two years. I take Asacol and fish oil and I have been fine. My GI doc now tells me that beginning in 2013 I will need an annual colonoscopy since I have had this for 20 years. Even though my colonoscopies were normal this is needed to prevent cancer. Has anyone else heard of this? Thanks
