I've also has pancolitis for 9 years.
My doc recommends a c-scope every 2 years.
I would be more comfortable with one a year. I think the GI's are taught that the dysplasia-carcinoma in IBD come very slow and occur over several years.
Another issue I have is the doc is in and out within 10 minutes. He grabs maybe 5-6 biopsies and calls it a day. That is maybe 10% of the colon. What about
the other 90%?
In any case, there is a new test called Pregen Plus that looks for DNA changes in the stool. http://www.directlabs.com/PregenPlus.php
This maybe a great test to use in between c-scopes. good luck,
