I had my colon out 5.5 years ago but I was never able to achieve remission. I don't think I would have even considered surgery if I was in a remission period. I totally understand how you feel about food. I couldn't do the strict diets back when I had UC. I did try though. I tried everything. If what you're doing right now is working, stick with it. If you flare again down the road and have had enough of it all, just know that surgery isn't the end of the world.....quite the opposite. Best of luck!
Thank you, I appreciate your support!
I think I will be one of those people that decide to have surgery sooner rather than later, it is just the way I view things, often differently to most people, quality of life is everything.
