hi everyone, new to this forum. diagnosed with UC last oct 2006. hospitalized for 3 and half weeks. was sysmtom free until feb 2007, started to get blood and mucous on stool. however still formed stools and no real change in bowel movements. i took a break in between jobs in july this year for six weeks (sept, last month) and was sysmtom free-ish, the odd bit of blood.
however now, when i started my new job, my symtoms appeared once again minus the mucous, jus blood on the stool and toilet paper, sometimes enough blood to blot the toilet paper. 2-3 (4 rarely) movements a day, normal formed stool.
not so sure what to do, i've eat healthly, drink plenty of water. i take my meds without fail.
any advice out there? or whether or not flare ups last this long? i only had really had 5 months sysmtom free since diagnosed!
