@lohavi Hi, and welcome to Connect. I know nothing about ulcerative colitis, but I did have cirrhosis for which I had a transplant in September 2016. Are the two connected? Mine was also not alcohol related, it was from fatty liver.
From what @dval said, it sounds as if ulcerative colitis is a difficult condition to live with. What symptoms are you suffering from? Having two conditions makes it all the worse, I am really sorry that you are dealing with this. Cirrhosis was enough.

I am sorry for the confusion.
My statement about Ulcerative Colitis and cirrhosis comes from my own experience with the liver disease, Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC). "For patients presenting symptoms, the disease reveals itself through fatigue, jaundice, itching and abdominal pain from liver damage, with 70-80 percent of patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (most commonly ulcerative colitis)." https://connect.mayoclinic.org/page/psc/tab/about-psc/

I had to do a little checking and here is what I found on the Mayo Patient Care and Health information> Ulcerative Colitis- One of the possible complications of ulcerative colitis includes Liver disease (rare).
