Talking about troublesome bowel habits -- or uncomfortable bowel exams -- isn't easy. "My husband has had ulcerative colitis for close to 20 years," Sandikal writes to WebMD's online Colitis and Crohn's Support Group. "But he never mentioned his symptoms to a doctor again after the first one recommended a colonoscopy."

  1. People who have UC should only eat bland foods.
  2. UC can't be cured, but the symptoms can be managed.
  3. Ulcerative colitis is easy to diagnose if you're up front about your symptoms.
  4. Ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome are two different conditions.
