Timing of colonoscopy while on Remicade

Does it matter when one has a colonoscopy while on Remicade?

If you have had a colonoscopy on Remicade, do you recall when you had it (soon after remicade infusion, at the half way mark or right before the next infusion?

I would think the best time would be 1 or 2 weeks prior to an infusion.

I always try to have mine within a week or so of being due for my next infusion.....I'm actually due in March, but right now my doctor is booked so I'm looking at April/May sometime instead if I want to keep on my routine.

Same thing with Remicade levels - I get them done as close to an infusion as possible....
