If anyone has any idea or suggestions about why I have had severe pancolitis for over 3 years and the only time I experienced pain in my bowl movements was during an antibiotic caused flare. I only had pain then for about 2 months.
Could it be that my inflamation is not "severe?" During flares I have lots of bloody D, but it is just amazing to me that I never feel any discomfort. I am just thinking if I am doing something right that I need to keep doing or is this just the norm for a type of UC.
