UC is a chronic disease. The only cure at this time is removal of the colon. Some of us can go for different lengths of time without medications, but flares almost always follow, and the disease can be more difficult to get back into remission then.
We're still us, just a little inconvenienced sometimes. Enjoy the good times, make every day count.
