uc and normal colonoscopy

11/08, I was diagnosed with UC from colonoscopy and biopsy.  Asacol helped the pain and eliminating certain things from my diet.  I constantly have severe pain & blood. A 2nd colonoscopy was done 5/09 which was normal.  My new GI doctor stated that I was misdiagnosed, took the Asacol away, & dx me with IBS.  I read on Oxford medicine journal that UC in remission can show as a normal colonoscopy.  It said that this doesn't mean the patient does not have UC but that they are in remission.  I am scared of what will happen without the Asacol as I had severe, crippling pain with it.  Does anyone know if that is true?  Can you in fact have a normal colonoscopy with UC if you are in remission?
