I got UC and confirmed by colonscopy Oct. 08.
In remission from Aug. 2009. At Dec. 2009, flexible sigmoidoscopy showed that I am still in remission.
These days (3 months? I think), I occasionally found continuous groove on my stool,
How can I describe this correctly to my GI? groove? dent? or even fillister?
When I met my GI last week, he even didn't talk with me when he heard that I was in remission. After prescribing some 5-ASA enema and ordering a blood work, he let me leave.
I asked for a colonscopy since I have not done it for two years. He told me:"It is unnecessary.Normally we repeat colonscopy after 8 years. If you really want, I can arrange one next year."
Should I concern this groove on stool? Thank you
