Judy, great information. A really quick question, if I may? For now, Tylenol 3 has been helpful the only thing that I have been able to handle for any kinda pain(surgeries etc). I don't react to pain( I have a really high level before I say anything). Is that a problem with UC?

Tylenol 3 is Tylenol with hydrocodone, and shouldn't be a problem used in moderation. Opiates do tend to cause constipation, though, so be sure to watch for this if you're taking it regularly.
