Left sided pain is not usually UC! There are lots of causes of which UC or ulcerative colitis maybe one. If you don't mind me asking, how old are you as this may give some pointers? The most common reason for left sided bowel pain is ibs, but if there is blood mixed in the stool then this needs investigating further as this wouldn't be the cause. The CT is reassuring though, but if you want to tell if this is blood that you are passing then you need to do a fecal occult blood test or have a stool sample sent to the lab.
