I went for my colonoscopy follow-up yesterday morning. The dr. told me that I have mild pancolitis, that I'm at increased risk for colon cancer and must take colazal to reduce my flare-ups and my risk of developing colon cancer. He said that I may still experience flare-ups, though.
He told me that I have to stay on Colazal indefinately. The medication info I've read says that safety hasn't been established in taking this medicine past 12 weeks. What's your experience with this medicine? Does anyone else take it for extended periods?
Also, does anyone know of any effective alternative therapies? How can I find out who's a good dr. in my area for a second opinion?
