"having to expose of waste in an extremely inhuman way"
There's nothing inhuman about having an ostomy and you'd do well to educate yourself and change your mind about that. I hope you find an easy remission and never need surgery yourself, but there are no guarantees in life and you'll find you're happier if you don't look down on your fellow human beings as "inhuman" because their bodies are different from yours.
Seconding all the responses above about rejection/recurrence of colitis... My brother is a Type 1 diabetic (autoimmune disease that attacks the pancreas) and they don't do pancreas transplants for Type 1 diabetics for the same reason, it's a difficult transplant and the body would most likely just attack the new organ.
