a look-see with a rectoscope might be OK, but even then...it seems the doc doesn't trust his treatments or is just after the $$.
What meds are you on Ninja?
The only time I got the doc to take a look ,other than my c-scopes every 2 - 3 years, was when I was somewhat distressed that things were somewhat out of the ordinary.
I've only had 3 rectoscopes in 23 years.
*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.
Status: ...Asacol 3 @ 2x daily; Salofalk enema @ 3rd night (nightly/ flares, tapered/maintenance)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)

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