Ulcerative Colitis

My biopsy from my colonoscopy came back as UC. Strange since I rarely have diareaha and no pain. I went due to bleeding, mucus and a feeling like I had to go when I did not. I was shocked since I expected to be told I had internal hemrroids. I was hoping the biopsy would come back fine since I had been on cipro and had taken a lot of ibuprophen the last few weeks for back pain. Nope it is the real thing. I read online that the link between ibuprophen and worsening UC symptoms may not be as strong as they once believed. I wonder if that is true since I had symptoms for several months with ibuprophen as my painkiller of choice. I have not taken motrin in a few weeks and I do not notice any change besides what the Rowasa helps with. I tried going off of the enema's to see if I was any better. Nope the next day I felt all swolen again. My GI doc called me and wants to start me on Lialda but I read the side effects of that and I am scared. Rowesa enema's have me very comfortable right now but I still bleed a little bit. The going to the bathroom only to pass mucus and a little blood is gone now as well as the feeling of needing to go right now. So any advise from people living with UC?
