Don't listen to supersaw.....his logic is skewed....must be the pain deluding judgement.
Continue with your first-line med regimen for now. You could have requested the 5ASA enemas (Rowasa / Salofalk / Asacol / Pentasa...depending on where you live).
Did you recently have a c-scope to determine the severity of your UC? Where is it..limited or throughout?
welcome to the forum, by the way.
