Thank you all for your responses! Little bit more back story… my UC is in my rectum only after showing some signs of possible crohns higher up about 10 years ago which was dismissed by my doc as a outlier. Been on sulfasalazine 2,000 mg per day and canasa 1000 mg a day for the past 3 years or so and everything was ok. I suck at taking my meds regularly and started to flair a year ago and have been on 2 rounds of prednisone which put me into remission only when I am on them but then flair back up shortly after and Canasa stopped working. Totally learned my lesson and take meds religiously now!
My urgency to go happens so frequently now, and when I do “go” (about 6 times a day) most times it is just mucus and blood.
