I am new to this forum, and I have just been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I feel okay and I am not that sick. I have had some bloody stool, which is why they did the colonoscopy and confirmed UC. However, all of my bloodwork is fine. My doctor just put me on Rowasa. I have usually heard people with UC are very sick and have multiple symptoms. Is it normal to feel okay? Also, my UC is only in the lower sections of my colon. I am very scared because I have heard lots of stories about how bad UC can be. Any support and comfort is greatly appreciated!!
