I was flaring hardcore when I was initially diagnosed and that is the only colonoscopy I have had. It was 4 years ago. It showed inflamation throughout my colon and some small patches of redness.
My question is When is the best time to get one? during a flare or in remission? I would think the results would be significantly different. What are other factors to consider?
