Thanks for the advice. The doctor insists the cecal patch is relevant to up and studies suggest (as I’ve researched) actuallly suggest it is less unlikely to have proximal extension.
I think I’m on the wrong chat, my son is so mild, even before meds.
Whether or not it happens in your son, regardless of whatever studies you read, keep in mind that any inflammation needs to be treated and covered. So, both end approach is based on simple common sense. If the cecum is ignored and not treated based on not relevant, the rectum will he more of an issue.
If his next c-scope shows no inflammation at the cecum, please don't drop oral meds.
While UP may not spread for many, some have had extremely severe limited proctitis resistant to all meds and have had colon removal. I'm not in the know if some have had cecal patch involvement.
Be well, keep in contact regardless.
*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.
