Hi Christine....when was your last c-scope? Do you have any inflammation around the cecum?
Have you tried Asacol in the past or just Colazal?
Can you not use any 5ASA enemas?
I agree the fear of cancer is with most of us....I would say that all you can do is be checked regularly and have blood tests, although some cancer markers are false positives, so that sometimes is a fear enhancer.
Maybe not reassuring, however.....it would be nice for you to have a break from all this crap.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
