Mumbles in my opionion if your stools are getting more solid then that is always a good sign b/c even if you're bleeding it means inflammation is decreasing.
Callalily, So were you diagnosed with UC or colitis? I would assume UC has more inflamation due to the ulcers that develop? Either way consider yourself lucky b/c seeing all the blood than can come out at every restroom sit is really scary.
