In brief: Discuss surgery

For ulcerative colitis surgery options talk to a surgeon.
Removal of the entire colon with colostomy is one option. This removes the colon but you have a colostomy. Reconstruction of a colon after the ulcerative colitis is why you want to spend time discussing all options and what to expect. For some patients you may expect to have 4-6 bm's daily after reconstruction.
