PF, I love hearing stuff like that. It makes me worry less. I want to say that before my colonoscopy that I had symtoms for 2 or 3 months. I had thought it was internal hemmerroids and was trying to treat it but that didn't work.
The inflammation was pretty severe and they thought there was dysplasia but couldn't be sure through all of the inflammation so they recommended close follow up and more biopsies. I am suppose to have my results to the latest biopsies tomorrow but the doc is out of town, I'm hoping to get them from another doctor that works with him. I have also heard that inflammation sometimes looks like dysplasia. I am assuming all will be fine, but I can't wait to hear those words. Thanks for your input, it helps me relax a little. Take Care, Bellski
In all likelihood you probably DO NOT have dysplasia. It makes no sense that you would have dysplasia with any type of UC (left side, pancolits, proctitis) of duration less than 1 year. Much less likely with proctitis. By most accounts that I have read, ulcerative proctitis has no more of a chance to develop colorectal cancer(dysplasia, etc.) than the general population. Try to rest your mind.
