You are probably having rectal inflammation and should start rectal meds if you're not on them.
Where in the colon is your UC...limited or throughout?
What meds are you on at this time.
You could consider to make a signature to list your meds, where your UC is..etc so that we don't keep asking you the same questions...I'm notorious for doing so.
Rectal meds is one thing I'll always suggest...if you've tried them and can't used them, you can list which ones and the why.
Have you tried any digestive enzymes and are you on any probiotics?

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
