After a year and a half of symptoms and a UC diagnosis early this year, I am the closest I have ever been to remission. For the past month plus, I have drastically reduced pain, 1-2 bm a day (usually formed), no bleeding, and feel mostly less sensitive to food. I have a few symptoms that tell me I'm not fully in remission. However, I am lingering in this "close to remission" stage and have been for a while.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can make it to full remission? Or, is this what "normal" looks like to me now?
Just wondering what everyone else has experienced, and if you have any tips for making it into remission!
