Do you have "colitis" or "ulcerative colitis"? I ask as they are very, very different in treatment and prognosis.
Colitis, also known as infectious-colitis, is a onetime infection that quickly clears with a short course of medications (often antibiotics) and is not a repeating problem going forward.
Ulcerative Colitis is a chronic, lifelong illness requiring a maintenance medication for life. They put you on anti-inflammatory medications and/or immuno-suppressants to treat it.
If you were not given medications, then I would suspect you had an infectious-colitis.
