I found out I have UC pancolitis 2 weeks ago. I was hospitalized and came out yesterday.
I'm Korean and It is mandatory for me to serve in the Korean army for 2 years. I found out that people who have UC are exempt from serving in the army. The thing is that I will have to show proof to the Korean army that I have UC. Due to complicated circumstances I probably will have to have another endoscopy at hospital that is recognized by the Korean army.
I had an endoscopy 2 weeks ago and I think it would be bad to do another one anytime soon since I am on medications now. I'm worrying that I will be in remission at the time of doing the endoscopy.
Can someone tell me if it is still possible to detect if somone has UC even when the person is in remission through endoscopy or any other tests?
