Hi...well, I'd hate to burst your bubble, but chronic means forever. There is no cure for UC....so, accepting that fact will go far for you.
Chronic colitis....probably the report has maybe classic symptoms of UC, depending on the formation of the cells.....and the fact that there are already changes in the cells...probably has it as an IBD anyway...
You should be on the Canasa daily at least...
Yeah, the stains can be bad, but I don't use bleach in the water...you might want to try one of those pucks you can put in the tank rather than pouring bleach.
The under rim ones are worst...I clean the seat daily, wash the bowl twice a week, or more if necessary.
I think the Canasa...being a type of oil, can make the stains worse....but I'm just guessing on that. The other thing...your type of water could be an added culprit.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
