    Is it normal to pass mucusy blood clots with ulcerative colitis?

    After I have been to the toilet, the toilet bowl is filled with bright red blood and I pass a few bloody clots.

    I have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis (proctitis?) Any chance this could only be haemorrhoids? I also feel quite nauseas and quite uncomfortable in the lower abdominal area.

    In view of the fact that you have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and have symptoms that are more consistent with having a flare-up, and possibly even a progression of the bowel disease, it's important that you consult your gastroenterologist.
