Welcome to the forum Blondie.
Sorry you're feeling so badly - both UC and stomach virus - ouch!
When I used to bleed (quite heavily too), I always had lots of blood clots - that was all before LDN (low dose
naltrexone). The GI never explained them to me, so I'm sorry I can't give you any insight into them.
Just wanted you to know I had them too, so I know how that feels.
I hope you feel better soon.
