Was rectal and up about 30 cm.  Hopefully much less by now.  Scope was February.  I have from one to 4 BM's - rarely more than 2.

I have no inflammation at the moment but I still go to the bathroom about 2-4 times a day - IBS related probably. At my worse, I have left sided, my inflammation was up to the top of the colon and slightly into the tranverse. At that time I was going about 15-30 times a day with massive bleeding, pain and mucous.
