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?
