My GI told me upfront he'd want to do one every 2-3 years, depending on how I was doing.
Had my first one in 2004 (which was how I got diagnosed) and had my 2nd one in 2007. I was thinking he would do one this year but he hasn't mentioned it yet and I've been sicker than I've ever been the past year! So who knows. I have an appointment with him in June...maybe he'll mention it then.
The prep is awful, isn't it??? But I always think that a colonoscopy is really the ONLY true way to see what the heck is going on up in there when your bowels are on the fritz.
