Did you have biopsies done? And what did pathology state?
You miss the point of using the meds you have been on. If you've been a lurker, you will know the importance....especially first tier 5ASA full coverage and maintenance.
One thing you will clearly ignore is the mildest symptoms of change as a flare. I suspect you will wait till more intense and obvious symptoms.....and treat too late. The purpose of 5ASA meds is continual and preventayive, not like using steroid or antibiotics, etc.
Keep us posted on your life with UC.....while you may be one who has minimal flares, I can only express concern of your choice based on my long-term success.
I suggest you change your strategy and question the reasons you believe you will be able to treat it like a minor issue.
