I was diagnosed w/ Ulcerative Colitis 8 years ago and coasted along well for some time.
During my 1st pregnancy I had a bad flare and since then I flare every 1 1/2 to 2 years. I take Lialda & Canasa regularly and prednisone during flares. This isn’t working well and I don’t want to take azathioprine or Remicade. I think I would rather have surgery.
What are other UC sufferers thoughts on surgery?
Colazal, Lialda, Canasa, Prednisone
