Do you have IBS in addition to UC? This happens to me if my IBS is acting up.

I have that happen quite often. I tend to relate it to how long things have been in my colon - the longer (when in remission or close to it) it's been in there, the more water that's been removed, and the more it's been "compressed". I could be totally off base though!

My stools are almost always like that, and I'd consider myself in remission (1-2 a day.) They are usually solid at first, then more loose as it comes out. Sometimes small pieces and sometimes just mushy stuff. But certainly not diarrhea. Just the way it is now.

This happens to me since having UC, too. I always thought of it how dakotagirl explained it.
