I just finished reading my c-scope report and it says I am "moderately to severely inflammed up t0 50 cm" of my colon. This seems like an awful lot to me. I was wondering what others people had read in their report. Thanks

Thats about right.  I have 45 cm.  I does sound like  a lot, but remember that your colon is 6 ft long, so you are talking a foot and a half that is affected.
