Jeff...I understand about
colonoscopy costs, I just got hit with a big bill myself. (Edit: but you can always do FCP tests in between colonoscopies...that is what my doc does)
According to my doc (who specializes in IBD only), some of the latest research shows that treating to "deep remission" provides better long term outcomes in terms of surgery, reduced risk of serious flares, etc. I am currently on 4.8g of Lialda per day. I tried 6 weeks of Rowasa, didn't help. She also had me try two months of Uceris, didn't help. I am seeing her next week but she is likely to push Entyvio next based on our past conversations.
Have you tried oral Uceris and/or Mesalamine enemas? My doc had me try both of those before considering further escalation.
