The healing process, inflammation, food intake, spasming, colonic activity..either fast or slow...etc can affect comfort.
Yes, when I use Salofalk, sometimes I have discomfort, and the bm sometimes the morning after has extra propulsion...blast off!!! LOL!
You could ask the doc for an antispasmodic...that might help with the discomfort so that you're not focussed on that.
It would be good if they help your UC...and for you to continue to use them.
