Stools

Nearly three out of four ulcerative colitis (UC) sufferers (73 percent) responding to a new nationwide survey say not feeling well has become a normal part of life. Furthermore, they describe UC as disruptive when it comes to their relationship with a spouse (64 percent), their sexual relations (75 percent) and their emotional state (82 percent).
How do you cope with colitis ? Are you struggling with the emotional effects ? Even if a problem shared isn't a problem halved it may help to discuss it with people in the same situation.

Stools

Post by MROSSALL » Thu Oct 24, 2019 8:48 pm

Hi

I have a question about my stools.

I’m 41 and was diagnosed with Pancolitis in October 2016. I managed to get my condition under control with Prednisone and Asacol tablets and enemas.

I currently take Asacol tablets as a maintenance drug.

My question is this, when I do open my bowels my stools are different almost daily. Sometimes there solid, sometimes there loose, sometimes there medium. They always seem to be different shapes and sizes as well.

There’s never any blood but Is this normal for an UC sufferer or should my stools be consistent.
