I am a Dr age 46 years. I was diagnosed as Ulcerative Colitis in Dec 2017 on colonoscopy/biopsy. Colitis is limited to Distil Colon (Proctosigmoiditis). I was given a short course of oral steroids and Asacol 800 mg thrice 24 hours. I went into remission and reduced Asacol to 800 mg twice a day. Now after 4 months of remission the symptoms have relapsed since last 3 weeks Symptoms are Blood in semi solid Stools, frequency is 2-3 times a day. Again started Oral Steroids since 10 days and Asacol 800 mg three times a day but there is very little improvement. Other symptoms are Gases, Tenesmus. No urgency, no Mucus and no watery Diarrheoa.
