Did the doc mention what type of colitis you have? There are many different types where the general term "colitis" means inflamation in the colon. I have ulcerative colitis but there are ischemic colitis, radiation colitis, micorscopic or collegeneous colitis and Crohn's colitis to name a few. If he didn't give you a specific, I would definitely give his office a call to clarify. This will make a difference on your treatment and also where the inflamation is.
