Rita, Crohn's disease is colitis. Colitis is either ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. Are you possibly talking about ibs?
My doctors are not sure if I have UC or Crohn's Colitis. UC can be 'cured' with surgery. The problem with Crohn's is that sometimes you have multiple surgeries with no cure in sight. Also Crohn's can spread to the small intestine as well as the colon and is associated with abscesses, fistulas and wormholes throughout the digestive system.
I believe Rita is trying to say that it would be frustrating to have your colon removed thru surgery expecting to be cured of UC, only to find out that you continue to have Crohn's colitis.
