My Gasto's nurse told me the other da that I have UC and CD... is it possible to have both at the same time?

Apparently there is a 2-5% chance of having both...but are you sure she didn't say you have crohns-colitis? That means CD is affecting your colon (aka: large intestine), not that you have both UC and CD.

Yes you can have both CD and UC.
Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital
in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.
 My GI doctor has me on Asacol, Dicyclomine,Imuran,Celebrex and Remicade. B-12 injection once a month.
My Internest doctor has me on Lisnopril-HTCZ and Folic Acid. Diagnosed
with Osteoarthritis July 2007

Hope that helps.
