I read in your signature..."had almost recto-vaginal fistula in 2004," you know fistulas are related to crohns and not UC (it's very rare, pretty much the only way a UCer or anyone eles that does not have CD can get a fistula is via injury)...now you mention the thing about
your throat (as you likely know, CD can affect the entire GI tract from mouth to anus, including throat) UC is limited to the colon/rectom area....on occassion I have experiance almost identical throat issues that you describe with my crohns.
Back to the fistula...what exactly do you mean by "almost had a recto-vaginal fistula" from my understanding (I have crohns) you either have a fistula or you don't, it's pretty unheard of for a fistula to almost appear and then heal itself since it's usually the cause of an abcess (also related to CD and not UC)....I'm just wondering if CD may actually be what's going on with you and not UC.
My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
