Wow, a flare wouldn't be caused by that Denise, any more than a flare would be caused by beans.
But, beans do have lots of fibre in them and can cause the gut to become more active. The extra activity could definitely cause more mucus.
at witts end..are you sure you've had absolutely NO symptoms in the days or a week before that...suspecting you might be starting to flare? constipation?
Where exactly is your UC? Are you taking the canasa nightly?
Are you taking any probiotics? Maybe this is a good time to start them if you're not anyway.
(Would you mind to make a signature to list when diagnosed, where your UC is and meds you're on...at least we won't have to keep asking you the same questions over again).
If it's continuing, maybe call your doc and see if he can put you on the retention enemas..or make an appointment to see him asap.
