Been flaring for 8 weeks as of Sunday...my worst ever.
C-scope last week showed severe pancolitis, 30 bloody trip to the BR day...and night.
Couple of days ago I bought a pack of cigarettes...my UC was first diagnosed within 6 months of quitting 4 years ago.
I have since smoked a total of 11 cigarettes over the past 3 days. I almost immediately noticed an improvement in my symptoms.
Today...a new milestone (?) This is the TMI part...
My first symptom attributable to UC (other than vague gut discomfort) was the passing of mucus balls. GROSS! Like the size of a raspberry.
I didn't have any idea what the heck they were or why I had them. I looked up some info online and other people were experiencing the same thing and did not know why.
To myself, I called them ASSteroids. Sorry.
Well, today I have them. I am HOPING it means that my condition might be resolving to an early portending flare state.
