I should probably know this but, well maybe not.....I am coming out of my 2nd major flare, first was when I was dx'd 8 yrs ago this month (happy uc anniversary.... not!). Have had a few small flares in between from not taking meds as I was supposed to but nothing like what I went through, anyhow...... my bm's have gone from diarreah back in Oct to stringy in Nov/Dec and since then have been getting fuller and more back to normal looking, even lately, in the past week, they are almost looking like they used to, but still every now and then will have stringy or mushy (it breaks apart in the bowl). Also, I have 1 to 2 bm's per day.
My question is: do I still have a long way to go before I am in 'remission' or am I in it now? Also, is it normal after a huge flare for it to take a long time to get the pre-flare bm's?
