Your comments are right on in that he has not had a colonoscopy in many years. He had major jaw surgery a few years back and had years of complications and re-surgeries, not to mention antibiotics that through him into flares. The jaw situation is more or less stabilized and now we are at present day dealing with his colon. He is somewhat resistant to seeing any doctor given his experience -one reason why I want to ultra careful who we choose. We do need to know the condition of his colon.I am concerned.
I am reluctant with Remicade since cancer is quite prominent in my family- sister, mother, twin sister and many aunts and uncles. They have all succumbed to this terrible disease-another factor in the mix.
I hope your son will be in remission soon!
Since your son had UC for about
13 years, and family history of Cancer, he
should be on routine screening for colorectal cancer, don’t skip colonoscopies!
