Hi everyone! I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 2 years ago, had my initial colonoscopy then, only UC was found. Been seeing my gastro doc since then, been on Lialda and canasa ever since and literally no symptoms. It's like I'm totally fine other than having to take meds.
So she did a routine colonoscopy 2 months ago and said my colon looked great, disease totally under control BUT they found a spot of low grade dysplasia (which shocked her). She didn't know where it was so we did another colonoscopy with dye to try and find it. She did a bunch of biopsies, she said she did the equivalent of 2 colonoscopys wanting to make sure she finds it (the dye didn't help anything). So the results came back totally clean, no dysplasia at all (yay). She sent both pathology reports to a 2nd pathologist (NYU) and they indeed found the dysplasia in the first report (so no mistake there) and also found it clean in the second. So confirmed the findings. Now I go see her next week to talk.
Should I be happy? what should I do? do I go for colonoscopy's constantly until they find the dysplasia again?
Thank you for any advice!!!
