The flu is respiratory....not gastro. So, if you're thinking that you have something gastro..I'd more assume it's UC related.
You should really be on the retention enemas rather than the suppositories...especially since you're in a continual flare. As well, an oral 5ASA should be considered..
Definitely get to your doctor, have a throat swab done, check to see if your tonsils are swollen and if you have an infection, get on antibiotics.
It's not unusual for some of us to basically feel like we're falling apart...and it's easy to pick up things when our system is already stressed.
Tell your doctor your liver area is continually painful...you should have liver enzyme blood tests done to make sure nothing else is going on with your liver.
Keep us posted as to what's going on.
Hang tough, the ride can definitely get bumpy...but do deal with the fact that you're not on enough UC meds to deal with the UC aspect of how you're doing. Continual inflammation is taxing on the body.
