having blood and fever are a bit higher on the degree scale with UC flares....so that isn't really an indicator of whether one has a flare or not.
Are you speaking about
your biopsy results that state that you're in remission with no inflammation? That's awesome!
I would say that IBS for many patients as well as meds sometimes can have one's bms changed. If frequency, urgency and rectal discomfort with bms is a factor, definitely consider it to be inflammation and early symptoms of a flare.
What are you going to do regarding your meds...oral/rectal....are you still on both as you have stated in your siggie?
