My 3rd flare occurred following a c diff infection. The infection started the inflammation and my body just went with it.
Have you talked to your dr about doing a fecal transplant? Research has shown that it is very effective for treating c diff (so much so that even very traditional, conservative drs may agree to it). Many people with UC have also had success with it- maybe this is an opportunity to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
Left-sided UC diagnosed October 2009.
