  Found out I had UC 2004 (Pancolitis). From reading some of the posts I don't think I'm really that bad. I take Colozal 3 tabs, twice a day. Things seem to be pretty good. My problem seems to be constipation. about a year ago I noticed my stools were "flat" . Has anyone else had this happen to them? Any advice? Am interested in hearing from others who suffer from UC and not just my GI.

Hi..welcome to the forum!

It's probably that you have some inflammation in the rectum (that's where UC starts remember..and will be first to inflame, last to heal).
I would suggest you start rectal meds.

The other could be IBS....

Are you eating enough food?

Are you taking in enough fibre (both soluble/insoluble) to bulk up the stool?

Do you have hemorrhoids?

*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 !!!
