Your determination will get you where you want to be! I so agree with you on having my colon removed - try everything first -EVERYTHING! I guess I would only consider it as a life saving measure of course.
I really know what you mean about treating your body right and still getting this. I never treated my body right and I have UC at age 69. If we only knew the CAUSE of UD I think it would help so much - of course in the treatment - but also in understanding why we in particular have it.
Hang in there - be firm with your doctor and keep treating your body right!!
