Removing the colon does not necessarily end UC.
Don't forget UC is an auto-immune disease in which the body sees the colon as a foreign invader and decides to attack it.
BeatUC has posted a couple of threads about the fact that surgical removal of the colon does not cure UC, with statistics, examples of some stories, etc... including one story I remember about someone who had his colon removed and retained a 2 inch piece of it (if I remember correctly) where it attaches to the bag - and in that 2 inch area of the colon still had UC.
I hope BeatUC will chime in and re-post those threads for you.
I wasn't able to find all the threads, but here are a few for you to peruse:

"Surgery why not?
" The widely held view that surgery is the “curative” option in patients with severe ulcerative colitis could not be further from the truth, according to the results of a large, population-based study presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology.
Indeed, colectomy wasn't the end of the story for the majority of ulcerative colitis patients who underwent the procedure in Olmsted County, Minn., during 1940-2001. The cumulative risk of additional gut surgery that wasn't part of a planned multistage procedure was 28% within the first year following colectomy, 53% at year 10, and 63% at year 20, reported Dr. Shamina Dhillon of the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn."
You can look through all the postings and find out all the pertinent facts, should you want to.
