well, they say there is no cure. however, there may be someone out there who has only had one flare up.
I had a 10 year remission after my first flare up.
then i had a 5 year remission after my second flare up
the flares however are getting closer together and longer though.
as far as never getting another colonscopy- well that has been a routine screeing tool for people over 50 anyway- so at some point you may want to see whats going on in there
