You might want to ask about
rectal meds to help heal the rectum...if everything else is healed and the rectum isn't, you'll still have symptoms.
The rectal med suggestion is to use in conjunction ... not alone....and don't listen to the part where a doctor or anyone will say your UC goes higher and it won't reach, because that's not what they're for.
You could also try fibre supplements to bulk up and soften the stool.

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