Were both CT scans of the abdomen/pelvis?  Did your doctor mention a colonoscopy? What does your doctor say? A lot of conditions should have been ruled out by the CT scans especially when done with contrast.

No, one ct with iv contrast was performed on my abdomen,the other ct was done on my lungs also with iv contrast,all normal. I've had uc for 8 years and this feels somewhat like a flare up but not totally,I started asacol three days ago it has helped with the pain on my right side and rectum ,and no my dr did not mention a colonoscopy. Also I've not had all symtoms (symptoms) of a flare so I'm not sure what is going on.........   sorry it took so long to get back busy mom........
