Hi... just want to ask to all people that have UC... do you get mucus/pus (green like phlegm) on your rectum..? i started having it after my fistulotomy in 2005, but continues up to now... is it cause by UC?

Mucus is secreted by your colon wall as a protective lubricant to ease things through. Usually it's a small amount and you never see it. When you start seeing mucus, it signals that your colon is inflamed and you're likely headed for a flare. This is the appropriate time to look into rectal medications, increased probiotics or whatever other techniques you use to handle flares.
