  When you are in remission are your stools big fat and normal everyday?????
No blood??
No mucos???
Sometimes I will have normal BM for a day maybe two then I get the skinnies
or what I call cat poop. That is best case for me but usually does not last long.

The skinnies (good term) could be from rectal inflammation/spasming or a tight sphincter from IBS or stress.

Remission is pretty much normal bms..never any bleeding (although I do have a fissure that opens from vigorous wiping)...but on occasion I get skinnies, especially when I don't eat enough during the day before or if my back is reallllly painful.

An antispasmodic (I use dicyclomine) can help with relaxing the rectum/anus if related to IBS, stress, spasming or flaring.

*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... increased enemas to nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

I just came out of a flare thanks to everyones help on this board and once you get consistent bm's that aren't soft serve looking you can probably relax....well at least I do but its all about being aware of what's going on. Remission is what you consider it really.
