I was diagnosed with severe pancolitis over 3 years ago and i would say it seems like I have had a blood most of the time. Although I have experienced remission without blood urgency or mucus. I am currently at 10mg of prednisone with very little blood, mucus, and urgency. Not where I want to be, but getting there.
I think with a positive attitude and a healthy lifestyle your daughter will manage her colitis, but it's not going to be easy.
