Stomach flu lasting longer with UC?

I’ve had a stomach flu for 5 days and I am wondering if anyone has had symptoms lasting longer because of ulcerative colitis?

    Hi Marcia,
    First I just want to say that I’m so sorry you’re dealing with a stomach flu right now and I hope it doesn’t last much longer. Of course, if you haven’t already, it’s probably worth asking a doctor this same question just to make sure what you’re dealing with is normal, but I also wanted to share a blog post that one of our contributors wrote a few months ago on this topic. It sounds like he also deals with worse symptoms from a stomach flu due to IBD. Here’s the link if you’re interested and I’m sending positive thoughts your way:
