As if my first UC flare wasn't bad enough, it was accompanied with a perianal abscess. I wouldn't have wished that on anyone. My bathroom became a torture chamber with each bowel movement, about 15-20 a day, feeling like I was excreting shards of glass. I have had flares since then but once the abscess was taken care of it never returned.
