I guess when my doctor said he was doing another scope/dilation ASAP he really meant it.  The hospital just phoned to say they want me to come in on December 9th for the colonoscopy/dialation under xray.  Once he does the scope he will then make the decision as to what new medication he is going to put me on, all I know is it will be a biological.

I wish you the best! I go for my colonoscopy on Dec. 16 to see whats been happening since my Feb. surgery and what future meds i need to be on. I used to be afraid of the biologics but after joining this forum and reading others stories. I'm no longer afraid.
