I was improving until today when I started having more BMs,(appro. (9) . I have no pain or urgency but this PM saw light colored blood on the TP. Am I getting worse again?

Hello,

Getting intermittent more frequency of stool with light color blood is part of ulcerative colitis due to intestine flora disturbances. Addition of probiotics in current drug basket will give better results.
