Trust but verify. Docs can make mistakes. Sounds like you do need more info from your doc.
You can ask the doc what s/he saw. Did he see signs of active inflammation? Is this why s/he is proposing a switch?
You are quite right - why change meds if it is only scar tissue?
If you are not feeling well, even though you have been on Imuran for four months or more, then that might be the real reason the switch is being proposed.
