Hi Megan. I am 48 and have had UC since I was 26. Mine mostly is under control except for an occasional flare. Mine is limited to the lower left part of the colon and rectum. I am on Asacol 400mg twice a day and use Canasa 1000mg every other day for maintenance purposes only. Welcome to the board and maybe someone younger will chime in eventually. Hope things go well for you with your scope. I have had a couple of them and a few sigmoidoscopes during the years myself.
Diagnosed with left sided UC in sigmoid colon and rectum 1986.
Put on Azulfidine 2 X 3 a day and Rowasa enemas 60mg.
Have been pretty much in remission overall other than a few flares over the past 21 years.
Medicine changed to Asacol 400mg 2 pills X3 times a day. Taken off all meds in 2004.
Diagnosed with acid reflux 2005. Put on Protonix 40mg.
Have been using Canasa 1000mg suppositories nightly since January 2007.
Was put back on Asacol 400mg 2 pills 2X a day in July 2007 maintenance.
