Could colon surgery improve extra-intestinal symptoms, like joint pain?

My ulcers have been confined to less than a linear foot from my rectum...

So I'm wondering if removing that section (yes, this may cause a plumbing issue) would have any effect on the extra-intestinal symptoms I experience (joint pain, fatigue, dehydration, abdominal and facial bloating, crankiness)?

Anyone have experience with this?

Thanks,

I don't think it will. I don't know enough about it to say, but the only symptom I'm aware of that removing the ulcerated bowel will help with is the pain.

The joint pain and things like that are caused by the disease process in your body, it isn't from the ulcers themselves.
