In brief: Rarely
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease.
The severity of symptoms can wax and wane depending on many factors such as diet, sickness and overall health. One can still have flares and attacks even when on medical therapy. Patients who have many flares despite medical therapy are offered a surgical consultation.
