How often to get a colonoscopy?

My 18 yr daughter has been in remission from Crohns for 3 years with Remicade.
Her one and only procedure was done at time of DX. Should she get another one? Just curious on thoughts.
Thank you!

Re: How often to get a colonoscopy?

Yes, she's definitely due. If all is good, 3 years is what my doc suggested because I had no precancerous biopsies. I'm now at every 2 years...(was diagnosed 24 years ago...still all clear precancerous biopsies).

It's all a matter of perspective!
