I've been going through something similar ever since my colon was removed. I was diagnosed w/ UC, suffered for a few years, and then finally got so sick that my entire colon had to be removed (it was literally useless). I was so much better for a while but then started having flares again that got worse and worse each time. The funny thing is they still reffer to it as Colitis even though I don't have a COLON! But the twist is, they've also refered to it as Crohns and IBD as well. I still haven't gotten a definate answer as to what exactly I have.
Dx w/ UC 2000;
J-pouch surgeries in 2002 - colon removed except for last tiny part connected to rectum which keeps inflaming;
Currently in remission from August hospitalization and tappering off Pred. (now 7.5mg);
Remicade, Cymbalta, Prevacid, Famotadine, QVAR,
Auto-immune disorder, anxiety disorder, mild asthma (chronic bronch), & Crohns related arthritis.
