Does anyone pass lots of slimy mucusm pinkish in color then go bm, but no blood with bm? What is this and what does it mean?
I have to tell you something real quick. I had to get in a co workers grip yesterday, for two years she's hasseled me. My boss is proud I stood up for myself and backed me on this. He's afraid of her to. She's a 60 yr bully. Anways, I felt relieved. Today was the first day in a long, long time where I didn't have to rush to the bathroom upon standing in the morning. Stress plays a big role in UC. Keeping it out of your life will do wonders. I have to work otherwise I love to be a at home mommy of my dogs.

Sounds like bloody mucous to me.

Congrats on eliminating some stress from work. Hurray!

You may be starting into a flare-- so beware. Remember that you did o.k. on Asacol in the past, right? Congrats on telling off the irritating co-worker! Every workplace likely has at least 1 of that kind, unfortunately. Wouldn't it feel good to just clobber them? (Since they never "get" hints!)

I have that alot, where I go to the bathroom and it's just red/pink mucuous and very small red pieces of stool and then I'll have a BM that seems to have no blood in it. It usually starts this way first and then progresses into having tons of blood all the time.

Yes, bloody mucus is usually a sign of a coming flare. You might consider starting meds to cut it off at the pass.

And congrats on shutting the old battle-axe up.
