I think it depends on how you're flaring. Most times I'm not flaring during c-scopes, but the last one I was starting to...
The bleeding from biopsies stopped at day 3...I started rectal meds immediately because the lowest part of my rectum was flaring and I suspected it before the scope. I believe the purge (and the fact that I had an accidental fall on the steps (dis
location of my shoulder) caused incredible stress a week previous.
Are you using any rectal meds...could be something you should consider as well as probiotics and fibre supplements to bulk up/soften the stool.
When do you go for the biopsy results? When you do, make sure you get copies of them to keep for your records.
