I am dealing with the same exact thing. In nov I was hospitalized in the worst flare I'd ever had. Well my GI was on vacation, so an oncall GI saw me in the hospital. He did a flex sig, and took a few biopsys at that time. And sure enough, one of the biopsys showed possible dysplasia. However it "favored" reactive changes from the severe inflammation I was experiencing at the time. When I saw the surgeon, he wanted to wait to do surgery, because the Remicade was working so well. But he also said, if I truly have dysplasia, he would recommend surgery. My regular GI was kind of upset that the other doc did biopsys when I was flaring so bad. He said most likely it is the inflammation, but we do need to now do a followup colonoscopy when not flaring, in a year from the flex sig to be sure there is no dysplasia. He said that there was no real reason for him to do biopsys, because we already knew I had UC and that I was in a flare...my regular GI would not of done the biopsys. Oh well, we are pretty sure it should be clear for the next colonoscopy.
