UC is a superficial inflammation that affects only the colon. I hope that is my current problem. But I may have Crohn's colitis that perhaps can spread throughout the small intestine. Cannot be cured by surgery. Not to mention fissures, abscesses, and wormholes that can ooze. Surgery is almost a certain eventuality with Crohn's and is at best a temporary fix. No question Crohn's is worse. Never thought I would be happy to hear that I have UC.
