A number of factors would come into play. What type of symptoms you are having? What type of treatment/medication are you on? How are you feeling? Are you planning on going off your meds because you got an all clear on a colonoscopy?
If you were only having symptoms of lower distress but were put on some form of medication that would treat inflammation in all areas and are feeling better now, that would all be good. However, not if you were planning on going off the medication based on testing done on a small area of the digestive track.
However, after saying all that, and admitting that I hate all types of testing, I would probably want some sort of testing done so that I would know exactly the extent of my disease.
