I think first you need to find out what's going on to make your WBC so high- obviously you have some sort of infection, somewhere. Or, if your UC is badly flaring, it could be from that too, I'd imagine. Don't listen to the people who are telling you not to jump the gun on surgery- if you are ready, go for it! There is absolutely zero reason not to. If your GI can definitively say you are sick due to UC, ask, don't wait for a referral to a surgeon. Good luck- sorry it's so awful right now!
