Ulcerative Proctitis and getting a follow up sigmoidoscopy, will they go all the way?

Has anyone here ever had a follow up flexible sig after having been previously diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis? I am about to have my first follow up after my previous colonoscopy, and I am really hoping they will not go any farther than that first little area where I was inflammed since I didn't have any abnormalities beyond that. I know the flex sig reaches well over 2 feet, and I'm sure hoping they won't go "all the way" unless they see some compelling changes just beyond the area not so far in that was diagnosed last year.

When I had mine done originally they checked as much of the colon as they could, just to be safe.

It's generally a good idea for them to do it, just in case. Can I ask why you don't like the idea of them doing it? It's an incredibly unpleasant experience, I can sympathise, but for me, I'd rather they checked the whole lot just so I can be certain there is nothing.
