I just listened to this. Great interview!
However, it is scary that his UC (27 years of it) lead to colon cancer - which he survived - but the cancer had spread to his liver (his second battle with cancer).
He did also mention that he lived in constant discomfort with his UC. At the time of this interview, he had a bag, but was looking forward to the jpouch reversal surgery after his cancer treatment. I wonder if he ever had that done.
