GMSAF, I thin we have a similar situation. I too was diagnosed in 2015 with mild-mod pancolitis. Never had any visible blood, but loose, watery stools, predominantly in the morning, 1-3 times. I've been on Lialda ever since and clinically I responded pretty well but the colon doesn't look any different. I've moved a couple times, so haven't been able to go on a biologic yet, but hopefully in 2017 (soon, I hope).
I was shocked to read your docs are wanting to remove your colon when your symptoms are what they are. Seems really drastic. I'm glad to see folks are agreeing with this sentiment.
There seem to be a lot of biologics available right now. I think I'd try each and every one before I even considered surgery.
Best of luck to you,
