Colitis is an ongoing digestive disease. The main symptom of the disease is swelling of the colon. Other symptoms include: high amounts of pain, tenderness in the abdomen, depression, large amount of weight loss, fatigue, and other, more severe symptoms. Colitis is treated through the use of antibiotics if it is found early, or surgery if it is caught too late.
