What’s the problem?
Both medications and surgery have been used to treat ulcerative colitis. Surgery is reserved for those with severe inflammation and life-threatening complications. Currently, there is no medication that can cure the disease. Patients with ulcerative colitis will typically experience periods of relapse followed by periods of remission lasting months to years. During relapses, symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding. During remission, these symptoms subside. Remissions usually occur because of treatment with medications or surgery, but occasionally they occur spontaneously and without any treatment.
Occasionally, symptoms are severe enough that a person must be hospitalized. For example, a person may have severe bleeding or diarrhea that causes dehydration. In such cases, the doctor will try to stop diarrhea and loss of blood, fluids, and mineral salts. The patient may need a special diet, feeding through a vein, medications, or sometimes surgery.
