I hate to say it, but you shouldn't have to change your career because of UC. I actually lived a lot of my adult life fighting to maintain employment because of UC, so I can relate. You're young... you can do what I did and just take what you can get so far as employment, what's sustainable, and scrape by, OR you can take the bull by the horns, try the treatments available and fight to get yourself into a position where your health is at a point where it's not impacting your ability to do whatever job you desire.
I think the best jobs if you want to do the first option, are desk jobs. A lot of desk jobs give you frequent access to bathrooms, some are
giving you flexibility when you need it too. They also have laws on fulltime positions where you're eligible for FMLA and disability, and you will get insurance. If you want to go the other route, and I would recommend it (you're too young to give up on your future), I would start by seeing a great GI at an IBD center. From there you can get this UC really managed and do what you really want to do. Otherwise, the mundane desk job, is a good option.
