I've had a scope each year b/c I am not stabile. In 09, I had inflammation in the colon via scope, biopsy and CT scan. Had a rough year last year, so they did a CT scan which showed inflammation in Dec. 09, so they decided to do a scope since it showed inflammation. The scope and biopsy were pretty good. Not sure why I am having so much trouble. Had to go on antibiotics recently and it seemed to help a lot with the pain. I am still having a lot of BM's.
