That stinks!! The good thing is your doctor caught it early and you are feeling pretty well... sounds like the D is from UC after all.
When I found out I had the 1 inch deep ulcer, I wasn't feeling THAT bad. I couldn't believe I had gotten that bad! (PS-I stopped taking Asacol and stopped seeing my GI right before this happened) Now, I feel worse than I was then, and the ulcer is smaller and the other 1 or 2 ulcers are gone.
