One other thing, UC does suck but in time you will learn how to cope with it, just hang in there you will get through the rollercoaster and never be afraid to ask for advice or help.

Just adding my 2 cents...changing my diet/lifestyle was the only thing that helped me get off all meds and get rid of my UC symptoms. So far...so good :) I don't recommend doing such a thing without your doctors supervision, however. Some drugs made me feel much worse when I took them, so I always told my doctor to try me on something else. For me, Rowasa was a gift from heaven at the time. I need to make a daily conscious choice of what I eat to stay well. For me, I eliminate all yeast foods and limit sugar, grains and dairy. I eat lots of any meats/poultry/fish/eggs, any veggies (except corn products-a grain), and most fruits. I treat myself from time to time with dessert. I don't feel underprivileged at all, not when I feel so much better now. Don't give up. If you want to try something different, like a diet change, go for it. You'll never know until you try, I guess, and you don't need to invest any money in any special potions or drugs. It's just good wholesome food.
