To clarify things for you Nostra....UC can be "cured" when the colon/rectom are removed, with CD, having the colon/rectom removed is not a "cure" since with CD it can affect any part of your GI tract from mouth to anus...if you have CD, then expect the CD to re-appear at some point somewhere in your GI tract (that wasn't removed), if you have UC, then because UC is limited to the colon/rectom, having those removed means UC can not come back.
Your experiance (with being disease free due to surgery) does not confirm that CD is infectious....neither is UC.

I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
