Yeah, please excuse my ignorance.
   St Marks does recommend regular rectal examination, either pouchoscopies or otherwise, when a patients biopsies or Pathology Report has identified abnormal cells (dysplasia) or when patients have received a J pouch after treatment for Cancer.

 My blinkered view forget to consider other reasons why a person would have their bowel removed and a J pouch created.

My reference in regard to Pouchoscopies not being necessary, was the advice given to patients like myself, whose had their bowel removed as a result of Ulcerative Colitis and their biopsies and Pathology Reports have not identifIed dysplasia.

Strange, I appreciate your opinions and the St. Mark opinions but I disagree with not getting scoped yearly. A lot of things require yearly check-ups in life whether something is wrong or not. When you wait until something happens it is often too late. You do not always feel tumors, cancers, and other stuff. I urge everyone to try to be adamant about yearly check-ups, if you still disagree, I respect every one's opinions and respect every thinking- I just do not agree.
