Well, actually constipation IS a symptom of UC or CD that affects the rectum.
Its all about

What kind of colitis do you have?
Get on retention enemas rather than suppositories, and stop the MOM or any laxatives.
You can add fibre supplements to your meals, add a probiotic and a dtool softener for now. Oh, you mentioned a stricture...where?
