Just wondering how long after you went off your medicine did your flare up return. I too thought the spinach/sunflower seed diet was helping me and went off most of my medicine. Now I am in a severe flare up. And to PSA-dehli are you happy you had surgery and do you feel normal again? I am considering surgery. My biggest complaint is even when I feel my best as far as my UC goes I do not feel great (low energy achy etc) and the medications usaullly give my side effects that are bothersome.

Well - most of the people are happy with surgery.

A lot depends upon your surgeon. You must go to the best. I have heard that Cleavland Clinic is theeee Best. Pb4 would be able to provide more inputs. She is one of our elite members on this forum, always available to us with her best advice, and encouragement too.
