Get copy of the radiologist's report for the CT scan, and let us know what it says.
A stricture can happen with UC on occasion. But if you do have one, it could indicate that you actually have Crohn's, or an 'indeterminate' form of IBD that is halfway between Crohn's and UC.
If they do see evidence of a stricture, then you should have a colonoscopy with biopsies taken from the stricture.
And if it is a stricture, then mesalamine drugs probably aren't nearly enough to help it. If it's active inflammation, a biologic might help. If it's scarring/fibrosis, no medication will help.
