I found a new doctor always wants to "see" for himself/herself so probably will want you to have another colonoscopy. I had two last year and a sigmoid. My doctor just says looking in there helps treat me when I am not responding to medication. I had to go on prednisone and now 6MP. I am doing fine but we are all different and if you have other better options - be sure to try them first.
