I live in a small village called Chipperfield in South East England. I have had UC for 35 years, 25 as 'total colitis'. I have a colonoscopy every year (was every 6 months) as I am a high 'cancer risk' having a severely damaged colon with numerous polyps. I have had over 38 colonoscopies over the years, )probably a record!) so am well aquainted with my insides! Presently I take Asathioprine.
