I hate that most. I had that mostly just mucous mixed with blood end of BM. Since prednisone that went away until I tapered to 20 mg. and now back again. Can't call it remission and wondering about going back up to 25mg or? I am also on 6MP now for 4 weeks today.
No urgency, no diarrhea, no actual "bleeding", no cramping - little discomfort in rectum at time.
