How frequent do you get scanned? (CT/MR Enterography?)

Just curious. Do you have physicians who order MRIs with any regularity to track your disease?

I have had like 4 MRIs in the past 6 years or so. And I just received an order for another one - I'm post-op so I like to take a looksie but I know these are expensive on insurance...

I have never had a MRI and don't ever want to , way too claustrophobic. I have had a scan once a year but only because I was in pain, hopefully it wont be for a couple of years, not good for ya.
