My rectum alone was debilitating, I couldn't imagine living forever with what i had going on. My diagnosis was pancolitis, but the rectum was always the worst, and even when it was just the rectum involved, it was severe and relentless. It was torture. Though I go more with my pouch, it's a lot easier to deal with. No pain, no urgency, no drugs. I do clean the toilet a lot, but i did with UC too! I don't have to worry about
polyps or cancer anymore either, which is a plus. No more tests, no more scopes... Not to say it's great, because I'd much prefer to be 100% healthy with a working colon, but it is what it is.
