That's what everyone is telling me.
 
here is my story constipated for many years. Then started to get blood in stools first, blood streaks on stool and then drips and new blood and mucus.
 
Took colonscopoy. Coyld not finish it because I was inflammed.
 
The blood test came and it says I have UC.

UC is inflammation and ulceration of the lining of the colon. The ulcerations can bleed.
